IASA Updates in the time of COVID


We thank you all for supporting the Italian American Studies Association Symposium in Lucca, Italy and annual Conference. As you can imagine, much time, work, and organization has been put forth in planning these events. At this time, however, we must consider the safety of all involved and postpone our two main vents for 2020. The entire committee is disappointed by this decision; nonetheless, the current public health situation in Italy and the US left the committee no other option.

On a positive note, the committee has already met with Fondazione Campus, and we have rescheduled the Lucca symposium for May 27-30, 2021 and the annual conference in Pittsburgh has been rescheduled for October 21-23. 2021.

Thanks again for supporting the Italian American Studies Association. We hope to see you in Lucca and in Pittsburgh in 2021.
