Identity Transformations in Migratory Processes: The Fluid Belonging of a Canadian with Slovenian-Italian Roots

The article reflects the identity transformations in the life story of Anne Urbancic, a long-term professor of Italian at the University of Toronto. The reconstruction of her story is based on an interview aimed to elucidate her complex immigrant heri­tage and on various publications about her cultural identity in Canada.
