Spotlight on: 
The Italianist Film Issue

The Italianist 2013 Film Issue continues our work of setting the agenda for Italian screen studies worldwide.

This forthcoming issue contains two roundtables which we expect to be widely read: 'Italy's Other Mafias in Italian Film and Television' and 'The Politics of Italian Cinema: Genres, Modes and Scholarship'.

As ever, our intention is to encourage greater reflexivity and innovation in Italian studies, and the liveliness of this issue is designed to generate discussion.

> More about this issue

The Italianist has successfully brought together medieval philology and modern critical theory, history and gender studies, dialectology and cultural studies, history of art and the history of cinema, linguistics and economics.
