About the Journal
Diasporic Italy is a scholarly, peer-reviewed journal devoted to the Italian American / Diaspora, focusing on timely and varied approaches to criticism and analysis of the field by presenting new perspectives and research on transnational issues. Published by the University of Illinois Press, it is the official publication of the Italian American Studies Association replacing the annual Conference Proceedings.
Interdisciplinary in nature, Diasporic Italy publishes in all aspects of the arts, humanities, social sciences, and cultural studies, and is particularly interested in comparative studies, pedagogy, and translation. Additionally, the journal encourages submissions on movement to, from, and within Italy conceptualizing all aspects of the diaspora including inter-coloniality and post(-)colonialism.
The journal does not publish creative works outside of translations, nor book or media reviews. Initially, one volume will be published in October beginning in 2021.
