Call for Proposals 

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: 1937–2017

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

Submit a title, a 100 word professional biography, and a 250 word proposal describing your topic to Flavia Laviosa at by 10 January 2016.
