About this product
- DescriptionAnthony Julian Tamburri examines the history of Italian/American writing and the concept of the hyphen as representative of the reluctance of the dominant culture to accept newcomers. He maintains that the hyphen in Italian-American creates a physical division between the two terms where the ideological gap should be filled Tamburri proposes instead to turn the hyphen forty-five degrees: Italian/American.

Calandra Italian American Institute of Queens College, CUNY and Professor of Italian & Italian/American Studies. He has written over eighty journal articles and book chapters, and eleven books.
