Product Overview

This collection of essays explores the private lives of migrants from Italy through biography, oral history, and ethnography; suggest why and how?across cultures?Italianness has come to be associated with a particular kind of femininity and supposedly distinctive elements of domestic life symbolized by long-held stereotypes of the Italian mother. On a larger scale, while the editors and contributors share with previous works on the Italian diaspora a keen interest in the imagining of nations across national borders, here they refocus our attention on the significance of the domestic, particularly the lives of individual men and women, their families, and the communities they loved?and left behind.
