The Italian Diaspora Studies Summer Seminar™ is a three-week summer program that takes place at Roma Tre University. It is designed to introduce participants (doctoral students and professors) to cultural studies of the Italian diaspora from a variety of academic perspectives and to foster development of individual projects responding to the materials covered in the series of seminars in literature, film, and the social sciences. All participants will engage in a special research project.

The Italian Diaspora Studies Summer Seminar is open to graduate students (doctorate; advanced MA students may be considered) and professors from colleges and universities worldwide. This is a collaborative program between the John D. Calandra Italian American Institute (Queens College, The City University of New York) and the Roma Tre University. Professors from these two institutions and others will comprise the teaching faculty for the three weeks of study. 2023 will be the seventh year of the Italian Diaspora Studies Summer Seminar. The program will accept up to twenty participants for the 2023 summer program. The dates for 2023 are from June 12 through 30, 2023.

Fellowships of $1,500 per participant are available upon acceptance.

Fellows will spend three weeks in a four-star hotel; the seminar classes will be held at Roma Tre University. Cost of room, board (breakfast and lunch), and tuition is $3,000. Graduate credit pending. Air and ground travel are additional.
