Scope and Contents
Anthony Tamburri is the Dean of the John D. Calandra Italian American Institute, City University of New York; Distinguished Professor of European Languages and Literatures at Queens College; and the co-founder of the Bordighera Press.

Tamburri shares how the pandemic affected faculty, staff, and students of Queens College and how he expects the Calandra Institute to continue to adapt to remote work for the upcoming semesters.
