Italian American Literature and Film
Prof. Fabio Girelli-Carasi
ASSIGNMENT JUNE 8
READING : A VERY RECENT ARTICLE THAT APPEARED ON THE NEW YORK TIMES LINK
VIDEO: Anti Italian cartoons: larger format, no comment.
VIDEO --- Anti Italian cartoons with comment LINK (new window)
This YOUTUBE video is unpublished. Only people with the link can access it. I HAD to do it because I was getting racist, sickening comments and I don't want to ever provide an opportunity for ANY kind of racist propaganda AGAINST ANYBODY, not just Italians.
Disclaimer: My video-editing program crashed losing all the files I
had worked on. Not only, but the program itself was corrupted and I had
to buy the new version suitable for my OS.
