Year of Italian Culture Symposium
2013 The Year of Italian Culture in the United States is an initiative that promotes Italy and its rich history and culture. Central Connecticut State University is a natural place to join the celebration because Connecticut has a very large Italian American community. The Elihu Burritt Library and the Italian Resource Center (IRC) have extensive holdings of materials that promote and support the teaching of Italian history and language. This symposium is the result of collaboration among the Burritt Library, the IRC, and professors of Italian History and Culture from various universities and colleges of the state.
The symposium is sponsored by the Friends of the Library, Welte Society and Italian Studies Fund, CCSU Foundation, the Italian Resource Center, Modern Languages, West European Studies, the Italian Club and the Center for International Education.
Events will take place in the Rare Book Room in Elihu Burritt Library and Torp Theatre in Davidson Hall. The symposium is open to both the campus and the local community.
Open to faculty, staff, students, and the public.
