May 08, 2019 225

Dr. Fiore’s award-winning book Pre-Occupied Spaces: Remapping Italy’s Transnational Migrations and Colonial Legacies continues to be part of and to foster rich discussions about migration on different campuses, while it is still reviewed in journals around the world (Italy, Brazil, England) two years after its publication.

The book was at the center of a diverse series of commitments at The Ohio State University of Columbus when Dr. Fiore was invited as scholar in residence. As part of the Migration, Mobility, and Immobility Project of the Global Arts and Discovery Theme she gave a public lecture on “Italy in the Transnational Space of Migration and Colonial Routes,” visited two classes, introduced a film screening of Nuovomondo (The Golden Door, Crialese, 2006) with the Global Mediterranean Working Group, attended a meeting with graduate students, conducted a workshop with the Migration Studies Working Group on “Transnational Cities: Reading Spaces as Texts of Mobility,” and met with members of the Italian American community of Columbus.
