Verso gli Italian Diaspora Studies: Vita, esperienza e territorio come prerequisiti per la crescita del campo
Keywords:Italy, United States, migration, diaspora
AbstractThe article deals with the problem of defining the ‘Italian Diaspora Studies,’ presenting it as a field in formation, different from the ‘Italian-American Studies.’ Its potential is linked to the definition of two main theoretical questions: the role of Italy and of Italian Studies in the field, and the connection with diasporic communities, following a Community-Engaged orientation. The essay also traces the experience of the author in research and didactics to demonstrate how life, experience, and links with the territories affected by diaspora are essential requirements for the growth of the field.
