Spring 2017 events and Fall 2016 Media Coverage

The Spring 2017 Inserra calendar of events will concentrate on topics of significance in today's broader debates, for their current as well as historical relevance: faith and artistic representation, food and the environment, immigration and globalization. While focusing on their meaning in relation to Italy and Italy in the diaspora, these topics are of interest to a large audience, and were indeed designed as interdisciplinary programs - embracing history, business and sociology, among others, this time - as it is always the case for the Inserra calendar. 
Starting with a book presentation by Dr. Joseph Sciorra (Built with Faith: Italian American Imagination and Catholic Material Culture in New York City, Feb. 23) and continuing with the second appointment of the "Critical Made in Italy" series (Critical Made in Italy Part 2: Food - Sustainability and Bio-technologies) to be held in March, date TBA, the semester will close with an event organized and sponsored in collaboration with Columbia University, addressing the delicate and topical issue of migration in the Mediterranean area (Italy and the Euro-Mediterranean Migrant Crisis: National Reception, Lived Experiences, E.U. Pressures, April 27).
For those who were not able to join us in the Fall 2016  semester and would like to learn more about the programs they attended, our Media Coverage page provides full footages and videoclips together with articles and interviews. For full descriptions of these past events, see:
