This presentation is based on research that led to the book  Un biculturalismo negato: la letteratura italiana negli Stati Uniti (Franco Cesati Editore, 2018). Anthony J. Tamburri examines five writers who live in the United States and write prose and poetry in Italian. Questions posed include: Where does "Italian" end and "Italian-American" begin? What are the issues raised by language? What relationship exists between literature in Italian written in Italy and literature in Italian written elsewhere?

Speaker: Anthony J. Tamburri
