 The California Interdisciplinary Consortium for Italian Studies (CICIS) was established in 2001 to bring together faculty, students, and independent scholars from around the state who share an interest in Italy.

CICIS' mission is to foster interdisciplinary and transnational research related to Italian studies in California, and to convene conferences where this research can be presented, and discussed. The organization is open to faculty and graduate students from any California research and teaching institution, and to independent scholars residing in California. CICIS maintains a Google Group and holds meetings and biennial conferences to discuss shared concerns. 

Our membership includes over 200 scholars and 32 affiliated colleges and universities.
