AATI INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE - ITALY

Università degli Studi di Napoli Federico II

Università degli Studi di Napoli L’Orientale

Naples 22–27 June 2016 

1) Innovations and tensions in Italian and world cinema

Session organizer: Flavia Laviosa (Wellesley College, Editor of the Journal of Italian Cinema ¶ Media Studies)

The Journal of Italian Cinema ¶ Media Studies has published several issues on the influence of Italian cinema on international cinema (Vol. 2: 1 & 3, 2014 on Italy-China; Vol. 4:1, 2016, and Vol. 4:3, 2016, forthcoming September 2016, on Italy-world cinema), thus shifting the critical paradigm outside the inwardly focused field of Italian film studies and exploring how Italian cinema expands beyond the boundaries of its (pen)insularity.

With this CFP, the Editor invites proposals that would identify innovations and tensions shaping contemporary Italian cinema productions and establishing new encounters with world cinema.

Proposals of articles should be entirely original and unpublished.

Submit a title, a 100 word professional biography, and a 250 word proposal to Flavia Laviosa at flaviosa@wellesley.edu by 20 January 2016.

2) Academic celebrations of Italian cinema anniversaries 

Panel organizer: Flavia Laviosa (Wellesley College, Editor of the Journal of Italian Cinema & Media Studies)

The Journal of Italian Cinema & Media Studies has published one double themed issue celebrating the 60th anniversary of RAI: 1954-2014 (Vol. 3:1-2, 2015); and a second special issue historicizing the 60th anniversary of the David di Donatello award: 1956–2016 (Vol. 4:2, 2016. Forthcoming January 2016).

The Editor of the journal is committed to publish new issues that will document, historicize and critically examine other major anniversaries celebrating the Italian film tradition. The purpose of these future collections is to pay homage to three main institutions: the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia, Cinecittà Studios and the Nastro d’Argento award, for representing the highest expressions of the Italian film heritage and for being symbols of collective cinematic memory.

This CFP invites critical and historical proposals on the following anniversaries:

-  80th anniversary of Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia: 1935–2015

-  80th anniversary of Cinecittà Studios: 1937–2017

- 70th anniversary of the Nastro d’Argento/Silver Ribbon award: 1946–2016

Proposals of the articles should be entirely original and unpublished.

Submit a title, a 100 word professional biography, and a 250 word proposal to Flavia Laviosa at flaviosa@wellesley.edu by 20 January 2016.
