Description : Despite their twin positions as two of North America’s most iconic Italian neighborhoods, South Philly and Toronto’s Little Italy have functioned in dramatically different ways since World War II. Inviting readers into the churches, homes, and businesses at the heart of these communities, Staying Italian reveals that daily experience in each enclave created two distinct, yet still Italian, ethnicities. As Philadelphia struggled with deindustrialization, Jordan Stanger-Ross shows, Italian ethnicity in South Philly remained closely linked with preserving turf and marking boundaries. Toronto’s thriving Little Italy, on the other hand, drew Italians together from across the wider region. These distinctive ethnic enclaves, Stanger-Ross argues, were shaped by each city’s response to suburbanization, segregation, and economic restructuring. By situating malleable ethnic bonds in the context of political economy and racial dynamics, he offers a fresh perspective on the potential of local environments to shape individual identities and social experience.

Description : This collection of essays offers the reader a critical analysis of the wide range of Italianese literature written over the last thirty years in North America. While writing by Italians in North America dates back over to the settlement of the New World, the last three decades in both Canada and America can justifiably be termed a renaissance in Italian writing. Both post-war immigrants and second and third generation North America Italians have produced a plethora of works in all literary genres and academic fields. Kenneth Scambray discusses the five major categories representative critical, scholarly, and imaginative works written since the 1970s. In the first three sections on history, folklore, and sociology, he locates the Italian experience socially and culturally in North America. In the following sections Scambray explores the works of selected North American Italian novelists, poets, and playwrights who have written about their Italian ethnic experiences.
