The Center for Italian Studies at Stony Brook University hosted the US component of a two-series international conference, “The Challenge of Migration in Europe and the United States: Comparing Policies and Models of Reception,” November 2 through November 4 at various locations on campus.
The conference was offered with support from Richard T. Nasti, chairperson for the Center for Italian Studies Advisory Council.
The program included presentations by judges, prosecutors, journalists, religious and labor representatives, and scholars.

The conference proceedings will soon be available on this website in video form and also will be published as an offering in the Forum Italicum Filibrary series.
