A lecture by Guido Tintori
Tuesday, November 20, 2012
6 PM
Sulzberger Parlor, 3rd Floor Barnard Hall

Guido Tintori investigates the experiences of people of Italian origins in the United States, particularly in the New York area, from a political point of view. By examining the progressive involvement and integration of Italian-Americans in mainstream politics, Professor Tintori explores whether the concept of transnationalism can account for their colorful political history. Guido Tintori is a Marie Curie Fellow at the Institute for History, Leiden University, and a senior research associate at the University of Oxford. He is the author, most recently, of Fardelli d’Italia? Conseguenze nazionali e transnazionali delle politiche di cittadinanza italiane.
