This project supports California Italian Studies (CIS), an electronic journal, and research related activities, including the sponsorship of an annual “day of studies.” CIS is an online, peer-review journal committed to publishing the finest, most innovative, and most potentially influential scholarly work in the field of Italian Studies today. CIS’s contributions¬† meet the following criteria: interdisciplinarity; comparative study; critical reflection on theory and method. Contributions make the most creative use of the journal’s digital format.
