About Andrea Ciccarelli

My current interests focus on the concepts of migration, exile and borders in Italian literature and culture, as well as on the historical, artistic and cultural effects of 1968 on Italy. I have written on modern classics such as Manzoni, Foscolo, Pirandello, and Montale, as well as on contemporary authors (Pressburger, Claudio Magris, etc.). At IU, I have the pleasure to serve as Dean of the Hutton Honors College, the academic unit of the most gifted undergraduate students (about 15% of the entire ~7,500 freshman class is accepted annually by the HHC). I also direct the Overseas Studies Summer Program in Florence.
