Staying in touch across distance: 100 years of Italian-Australian migration Other events...
A public lecture by Professor Loretta Baldassar, Anthropology and Sociology, UWA.

Loretta Baldassar's research and teaching areas include migration, transnational families and Australian society. Loretta initiated migration studies in Anthropology when she became a staff member in 1995. Since then she has contributed to the development of this research and teaching into a core area of expertise at UWA through several initiatives. These include co-founding the Migration, Mobilities and Belonging MoB Network and the WA Migration Research Network (MRN), as well as the funding and appointment of a Cassamarca Lectureship in Italian migration studies, an ARC Linkage Postdoctoral Fellowship on Italian migration in WA and an EU Marie Curie Postdoctoral Fellowship on Transnational Families. Loretta has supervised a steady stream of postgraduate research students working on migration related topics. She is currently working on two ARC Discovery projects: Ageing and New Media and Mobile Transitions.

This lecture is part of a year-long series that celebrates the 90th Anniversary of Italian Studies at UWA

2019 marks the 90th anniversary of the teaching of Italian language and culture at The University of Western Australia.

In 1929, Francesco Vanzetti, an idiosyncratic and popular Venetian, offered the first courses in Italian. This was the first appointment of a lecturer in Italian in any Australian university.

This lecture series, supported by the Institute of Advanced Studies and by Italian Studies in the UWA School of Humanities, celebrates aspects of Italian language and culture, past and present.
