Examining tarantella’s changing image and role among Italians and Italian Americans, Dr. Inserra illuminates how factors like tourism, translation and world music venues have transformed the tarantella cultural tradition, prompting a reassessment of gender relations in the Italian South and helping to create space for Italian and Italian American women as they reclaim gendered aspects of the genre.
