UPCOMING PROGRAMS (MARCHAPRIL 2016)

Thurs­day, March 24 — 7:00PM.

A pre­sen­ta­tion by Edvige Giunta (Women’s His­tory Month) about her lat­est book — “Embroi­dered Sto­ries:  Inter­pret­ing Women’s Domes­tic Needle­work from the Ital­ian Dias­pora.” For Ital­ian immi­grants and their descen­dants, needle­work rep­re­sents a marker of iden­tity, a cul­tural tomb­stone as pow­er­ful as pasta and Neapoli­tan music. Out of the arti­facts of their mem­ory and their descen­dants, they used embroi­dery, sewing, knit­ting and cro­chet­ing to help define who they were and who they have become.  This book is an inter­dis­ci­pli­nary col­lec­tion of cre­ative work by authors of Ital­ian ori­gin and aca­d­e­mic essays.

Edvige Giunta is a pro­fes­sor of Eng­lish at NJ City Uni­ver­sity.  She teaches mem­oir as well as other writ­ing and lit­er­a­ture courses.  She has spent the last decade writ­ing and orga­niz­ing cul­tural events about Ital­ian women authors and get­ting their works pub­lished and reprinted.  She is the author of “Writ­ing with an Accent:  Con­tem­po­rary Ital­ian Amer­i­can Lit­er­a­ture, Film and Pop­u­lar Culture.”

Thurs­day, April 14 — 7:00PM.  

A pre­sen­ta­tion about Italy dur­ing WW II,  Our speaker will be Stanis­lao Pugliese, a pro­fes­sor of His­tory & the Queens­boro UNICO Dis­tin­guished Pro­fes­sor of Ital­ian & Ital­ian Amer­i­can Stud­ies at Hof­s­tra Uni­ver­sity.  His last book was “Bit­ter Spring:  A Life of Ignazio Silone.”  Pro­fes­sor Pugliese will exam­ine Fas­cist ide­ol­ogy con­cern­ing the war, Mussolini’s alliance with Hitler’s Ger­many and Italy’s war in Ethiopia and par­tic­i­pa­tion in the Span­ish Civil War as pro­logue to WW II.  Also, he will dis­cuss the anti-fascist resis­tance and the holo­caust in Italy.

Both pro­grams are being held at The Cen­ter for Ital­ian & Ital­ian Amer­i­can Cul­ture, 411 Pomp­ton Avenue, lower level, Cedar Grove.  Advance reg­is­tra­tion is required.  Fees:  mem­bers — $7.00  non-members — $10.00.  Call to reserve:  973.571.1995 or e-mail:  info@ciiac.org.
