Profile

Nancy Carnevale is an Associate Professor in the Department of History where she teaches courses in the history of immigration, race, and ethnicity in the U.S., women's history, and Italian American history. Her research has focused on Italian immigration to the U.S. Her book, "A New Language, A New World: Italian Immigrants in the United States, 1890-1945" (University of Illinois Press, 2009), was the winner of a 2010 American Book Award. It is the first full-length historical study of one immigrant group's experience of language in the U.S. Currently, she is working on a comparative study of Italian American and African American relations in urban and suburban New Jersey to explore how local context affects ethnoracial relations. She has twice been a National Endowment for the Humanities Fellow. Her work has also been supported by the Social Science Research Council and the Rockefeller Foundation. She is co-editor of the Critical Studies in Italian America book series with Fordham University Press.
