Multicultural Literature in Contemporary Italy
Edited by Marie Orton and Graziella Parati

About the Editors:
Graziella Parati is the chair of Comparative Literature at Dartmouth College.
Marie Orton is Associate Professor of Italian at Truman State University.




The goal of this new collection is to provide both scholars and students of global migrations with further examples of the wealth of literary material created by migrants to Italy. These migrants come from a vast number of countries in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, South America, and the Middle East. The authors included here are not intended to reflect demographic percentages, but rather a cross-section and sampling of the current literary production.
