Call for Papers: Journal of Italian Cinema & Media Studies

A complex definition of Italian cinema has emerged since the 1990s, leading to a re-thinking of the current and varied manifestations of national cinemas and media. This CFP intends to contribute to the debate by: considering the role of international co-productions; exploring why films produced outside Italy fit into notions of Italian cinema; examining whether foreign directors producing films in Italy could be factored into a larger definition of Italian cinema; and studying filmmakers of the Italian diaspora.

Proposals are invited on, but not restricted to, the following:
• International co-productions
• Bollywood, Nollywood and Hollywood productions in Italy
• Regional Film Commissions productions
• New digital media, web-based visual texts
• Italian cinema outside of Italy
• Filmmakers of the Italian diaspora
• talian filmmakers working on non-Italian-language films
Send proposals to the Editor, Flavia Laviosa, at
1. 500-word abstract outlining: the topic, critical approach, and theoretical bases of the proposed article;
2. relevant bibliography and filmography;
3. 200 word bio-data followed by a detailed list of the author’s academic publications.
