Diaspora Series: Multiculturalism and Cultural Identities in the 21st Century

Conversation and Presentation of “Forgotten Italians”

Sunday, March 22 at 3:00pm

Join us for a conversation with the authors, Elisabetta Carraro, Gabriella Colussi Arthur, Paolo Frascà and Benedetta Lamanna, with introductory remarks by the editor, Konrad Eisenbichler.

“Forgotten Italians” is a ground-breaking collection of articles on Julian-Dalmatians in Canada. Julian-Dalmatians constitute an important element in twentieth-century Italian history and represent a unique aspect of both Italian culture and emigration.

“Forgotten Italians” reviews the history of their diaspora and examines the literary and artistic works they produced as immigrants to Canada.

Reading and Presentation of “Ritorno alle Origini”
Moderated by Bruna Di Giuseppe-Bertoni

Saturday, March 28 at 3:00pm

Join Rosanna Lo Presti for a reading and panel discussion about her book “Ritorno alle Origini”.

“Ritorno alle Origini” is the story of a migrant who sought well-being in another country that was not possible in her own. In fact, in this story, the author has included much of her own story and experiences.

Rosanna Lo Presti helps the reader understand the human side of being a migrant, the adversity they are faced with and the important goals that, with commitment and dedication, with love and passion, everyone can reach.

Please note that this presentation will be predominantly in Italian.
