Immigration has rapidly changed the landscape of the Italian population and culture. Instability in the surrounding region has transformed Italy into a haven for those fleeing war, economic hardship, and corrupt governments. The influx of immigrant communities into Italy has shifted a predominantly ethnically homogeneous country into a melting pot.

Through lectures, media, scholarly writing, and in class discussion, this course will explore the sociological and cultural framework this shift has caused in Italy. This course will cover the nuances and policies of things such as border security and economic impact, but also topics such as immigrant identity and the prejudice that immigrant communities face. Along with students comparing the current state of immigration in Italy, other Europe, and the United States, this course will also explore the historical significance colonialism, and European emigration have on the current attitudes of modern Italy. Historical and contemporary context will give students the information necessary to explore the complexities of immigration in the 21st century.
