What: Living the Revolution: Italian Women's Resistance and Radicalism in NYC 1880-1945. Italians were the largest group of immigrants to the United States at the turn of the twentieth century, and hundreds of thousands led and participated in some of the period's most volatile labor strikes. Yet until now, Italian women's political activism and cultures of resistance have been largely invisible. In Living the Revolution, Jennifer Guglielmo brings to life the Italian working-class women who helped shape the vibrant, transnational, radical political culture that expanded into the emerging industrial union movement. Who: Jennifer Guglielmo is an historian and Associate Professor at Smith College in North Hampton, MA. She is the co-editor of the book Are Italians White: How Race is Made in America.
