Check out the Cosmopolitan Collective!
The Cosmopolitan Collective is a dynamic constellation of interdisciplinary, transnational, and public intellectuals, belonging to but not bound by the field of Italian Area Studies. As a collective, we are committed to construct a cosmopolitan intellectual space where the intersection of race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, ability, rank, class, and/or language can produce fruitful and stimulating discourses. As Cosmopolitans, we seek primarily to engage those voices — that have been historically marginalized or excluded from academe — in order to create new spaces for intellectual exchanges which are politically and culturally affirmative.
