KPU anthropology instructor Dr. Sam Migliore has been inducted into the Vancouver Italian Cultural Centre (ICC) Hall of Fame for his contributions to both the Italian community, and the community-at-large in the field of arts and culture.

A medical and visual anthropologist, Migliore has worked extensively with community groups in Cape Breton, southern Ontario and BC’s Lower Mainland to explore and address issues related to the culture and well-being of Italian Canadians.

His research in Nova Scotia led to the publication of his book Italian Lives, Cape Breton Memories (Cape Breton University Press, 1999), and he has produced several ethnographic films that deal with Italian and Italian Canadian religious feasts.
