ITAL 317 - Italian America (In English)

Spring (3) Staff

This course will explore the imaging and self-imaging of Italian- Americans in literature and film, from representations of Italian immigrant “otherness” to present-day attempts at identity construction, differentiation and assimilation by Italian-American filmmakers. Alongside issues of ethnicity, we will consider those of gender, class and race, in order to understand the positioning of “Italian- American” within the greater spectrum of identities that make up the U.S. map.
