New research trends in Italian screen studies

New research trendsThat’s the title of an iTunes U course of talks and video-conference sessions on Italian screen studies, organised by Dana Renga (Ohio State University), delivered by ten scholars from the US and UK, and viewable free through iTunes. Topics include: teen film, fascist colonial cinema, neorealism, mafia cinema, migration cinema, serial television, star studies, the terrorist film and the biopic, new queer cinema, popular cinema and the cinepanettone, and postfeminism. The course takes stock of the discipline, considers what changes we have seen over the last decade, asks where we are now, and reflects on where we might be headed.
