Department of Italian Studies
Community home page
Since its modest beginnings before the middle of last century, Italian studies has had a diversified development. Combined into one department with Spanish from 1887 to the early 1970s, Italian studies succeeded in 1973 in charting its own course and becoming the largest Italian department outside of Italy.
The graduate department is among the very few in North America which offers a specialization at the doctoral level not only in Italian literature but also in Italian linguistics. The department counts among its members a number of established scholars, who have produced 40 books over the past five years. Younger scholars are also quickly establishing themselves on the international stage.
