The Italian American Studies Open Syllabus (IASOS) is a crowd-sourced digital collection of remixable resources to explore and teach the Italian diaspora in the United States. Organized by keyword, each entry offers an introductory curatorial overview alongside a selection of resources encompassing academic and non-academic texts, cultural artifacts, educational materials, and multimedia content. Aimed at both educators and individuals, it fills the gap in Open Educational Resources for Italian American Studies and caters to the community's desire to connect with their heritage. Launched in April 2024, the IASOS encourages contributions to expand its scope and represent diverse perspectives on and within the Italian American experience.
