ITAL 5570 Immigrant Voices in Contemporary Italy (Fall: 3 )
The class will examine the new reality of Italy as a nation with a significant population of immigrants. Focusing on the evolving meaning cultural identity in Italy today, we will read short works by four immigrant Italian writers of Italian: Amara Lakhous, originally from Algeria; Laila Wadia, from India; Gabriella Ghermandi, from Ethiopia; and Igiaba Scego, from Madagascar. The class is also designed to improve the oral and written linguistic competency of all students.
