Inserra Chair

Welcome to the page of the Inserra Chair in Italian and Italian American Studies, affiliated with the Italian Program and housed in the Modern Languages and Literatures Department at Montclair State University.

This endowed position is devoted to the promotion of Italian culture with particular emphasis to its meaning and relevance in the international scene, and especially in the U.S. and in New Jersey, as a result of people’s migrations and exchanges of ideas, practices, and goods over the centuries.

Join us for a rich program of Italian and Italian American cultural activities at MSU or in other venues in New Jersey!
