Outsights: Images of Italian Americans in Other Literatures

=20

"Voices in Italian Americana" is a semi-annual literary and cultural =
review
devoted to the dissemination of information concerning the contributions =
of
and about Italian Americans to the cultural and art worlds of North =
America.

=20

We invite submissions of critical essays from scholars in all ethnic
literatures and films to be published in a special issue in the Fall of
2006.=20

=20

We are especially looking for contributions that deal with the
Italian/American presence in non-Italian/American U.S. literature. We
welcome a diversity of approaches--comparative, aesthetic, social,
political, cultural, and the like--to the role of Italian/American
characters in other ethnic literatures and films.

=20

Through the trope of "outsights," we hope to stimulate a cross-cultural
dialogue among ethnic academic communities, and to bring new =
perspectives to
bear on both the Italian-American and the non-Italian-American critical
fields.=20

=20

Submission deadline: Aug. 1, 2006.
