Patterns of Nostos in Italian Canadian Narratives ~ edited by Gabriel Niccoli 27 Apr, 2021 19:04 PM
The articles in this volume study the manner in which patterns of nostos, of journeying and returning, in Italian Canadian narratives are both identified and deployed. The contributions span from diaspora and postcolonial studies to cultural sociology and anthropology, from literary criticism and semiotics to the history of immigration, from high ranking diplomacy to creative writing and documentary photography, and from comparative literature to translation.

Italian-Canadian Narratives Showcase is an initiative born in 2019 under the guidance and support of ICAP (Italian-Canadian Archives Project), a national network dedicated to securing the Italian-Canadian contribution to Canada’s evolving narrative, past and present. ICNS displays Italian heritage projects across Canada. The material presented here comes from public and private archives, university students’ work, local Italian-Canadian clubs and associations. The projects showcase the history and the role of Italian migrants in Canada from the late 19th century to the present.
The University of Guelph provides an Open Access repository for the Italian-Canadian Narratives Showcase project.
