Courses / trainings

The symposium is a collaboration between three diverse Italian migration organisations - a welfare and cultural agency, a tertiary institute and a museum - each deeply connected with the community, institutions and culture of a cosmopolitan city which is also iconic of the Italian migrant and diasporic experience.

The Symposium - the first international conference of its kind - brings together researchers and practitioners from Australia, the United States, Italy and other locations to explore the vicissitudes of Italians and Italian identity in the transcultural spaces defined by mobility.
