    IAP 130: “Where We’ve Been, Where We Are, and Where We’re Going” -- Examining the Italian American Identity Survey Results (Part 3)

    IAP 130: “Where We’ve Been, Where We Are, and Where We’re Going” -- Examining the Italian American Identity Survey Results (Part 3)

    It’s Part 3 of our four-part series examining the results of our ITALIAN IDENTITY 2020 SURVEY, our exploration into the hearts and minds of Italian Americans in the 21st Century.
    With results drawn from more than 1,600 respondents from around the USA, this episode takes us into the souls of Italian America, to understand what respondents felt were the most important touchstones of the modern Italian American experience, how we see the difference between Italian and Italian American food, how they felt about Italian regional differences in modern Italian American life, who still believes in the "malocchio," and whether or not we can use the term “Medeegan” without offending our Anglo-Saxon countrymen.
    Then we will explore the results relating to Italian American religious affiliations and attitudes, digging deep into the historical and cultural roots of Italian Catholicism and how it has become such a distinct part of secular Italian American identity, and what impact the dual identity of Church and State in Italian history has had on who we are today.
    We’ll then assess the frequency of Italian American travel to Italy which, of course, inspires reflections about our own first visits to the Madre Patria -- one of many personal recollections and wanderings inspired by these fascinating results.
    For those who are interested in following up on these episodes by exploring the results on paper, we’ve decided to hold off on releasing them piece by piece in favor of dropping an entire report when the final episode airs... so if you haven’t already, head over to our Facebook page and follow us now to be sure you don’t miss the release!
    If YOU are a proud Italian American who wants to understand a more personal side of your community, you won’t want to miss this episode!

    IAP 129: “Where We’ve Been, Where We Are, and Where We’re Going” - Examining the Italian American Identity Survey Results (Part 2)

    We’re back with Part 2 of our multi-episode series examining the results of our ITALIAN IDENTITY 2020 SURVEY, our effort to ask the questions only we could ask of ourselves, and to understand what the Italian American community really looks like today, and what we will become in the future.
    With more than 1,600 respondents from around the nation chiming in, we’re moving into more nuanced territory as we look into questions regarding how important our Italian heritage is to those surveyed, whether or not they prioritized marriage to a fellow Italian American, what percentage had “married out" and what that means for the future of Italian America.
    We’ll examine the strength of Italian and regional languages revealed in the results, and what language means to our identity.
    We share results about political affiliation, how closely respondents identified with their political party, which issues facing the nation are most important to us, and which are most impacted by our Italian identities.
    And of course, every answer will inspire our usual wanderings into the trivia of Italian American life, like why post-war Italian propaganda may explain the modern relationship between Italians and Italian Americans, the history of swearing in the Neapolitan language, how Italians respond to Italian American political candidates, and whether or not we have “Tribal Rights” to use “the G-Word."
    Plus, if that’s not enough to keep you busy, one day after the episode premieres, you’ll be able to see detailed results on our Facebook page... so if you haven’t already, head over and follow us now!

    IAP 128: “Where We’ve Been, Where We Are, and Where We’re Going” - Examining the Italian American Identity Survey Results (Part 1)

    At the start of Italian American Heritage Month last October, we created the ITALIAN IDENTITY 2020 SURVEY, which is our effort to ask the questions only we could ask of ourselves, and to understand what the Italian American community really looks like today, and what we will become in the future.
    More than 1,600 passionate Italian Americans from around the country have made their voices heard, and we are poring over the responses with a fine-tooth comb, seeking to understand all we can learn about our Italian American culture from the results.
    In this episode, the first in a multi-part series dissecting the findings, we’ll discuss the demographic data our survey revealed-- which gender, age, and geographic locations responded to our call, where in Italy their families came from, what type of education they had achieved, what professions they practice each day, and what generation of the Italian American immigrant story they come from. It’s a fascinating introduction to the voices that make up our findings, and one that inspired our usual tangential explorations of the minutia of Italian American life.
    And, once the episode premieres, you’ll be able to see detailed results on our Facebook page... so if you haven’t already, click here to head over and follow us now!
