This international conference brings together scholars from the United States, Canada, France, the United Kingdom, and Italy to analyze and debate the meaning of Italian citizenship and identity from the first movements for Italian nationhood in the early nineteenth century to today. In so doing, the speakers will trace the tributaries that have produced contemporary Italy’s contested definition of citizenship.
The presentations will address the evolving nature of Italian citizenship and the forces of nationalism, colonialism, racism, dictatorship, and immigration that have produced it in the last two hundred years.
