    Please see the announcement and call for papers for Diasporic Italy.

    Diasporic Italy: Journal of the Italian American Studies AssociationInaugural Volume (2021) – Call for Papers Description:Diasporic Italy is a scholarly, peer-reviewed journal devoted to the interdisciplinary study of Italian American / Diaspora studies, focusing on timely and varied approaches to the criticism and analysis of the field by exploring new perspectives on issues of diversity, gender, race, sexuality, and transnationalism. It is the official publication of the Italian American Studies Association (IASA)  published by the University of Illinois Press.Unique from other journals in the field, Diasporic Italy not only seeks to publish pieces in literature, cinema and media studies, history, art history, ethnic studies, migration studies, and political science but also original works in sociology, psychology, theology, sexuality studies, women and gender studies, pedagogy, and translation. Currently, we will publish one volume annually in October. The inaugural issue forthcoming in 2021. We will not review books or media. Call for Papers:Diasporic Italy welcomes original, unpublished articles revolving around any aspect of the Italian diaspora. As the official publication of an Association of scholars, teachers, and creative writers, the journal seeks works open to various scholarly methods and/or theoretical perspectives. Diasporic Italy aims to further the discourses on defining the Italian Diaspora and studying the cultural material(s) related to such an undertaking. The journal will consider theoretically sophisticated pieces ranging from cultural studies, history, popular culture; discourses of class, ethnicity, gender, race, sexuality, and subalternity; film and queer theory. All scholars are invited to submit an essay for review to the journal, but only current members of IASA may publish articles in Diasporic Italy; therefore, if one’s submission is accepted, one will be required to join.  Deadline for the inaugural volume: December 1, 2020.  For more information about Diasporic Italy: submit an article:  Submission GuidelinesAuthors wishing to have an article manuscript considered for publication should submit the following three items in Microsoft Word format as attachments through the University of Illinois Press Journal Submission management system:
