Wed Apr 24 17:04:15 GMT 2013

*Italian Cinemas and Media *

*CFP for /Journal of Italian Cinema and 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 Italian cinemas and media. This/ /CFP for the /Journal of Italian Cinema and Media Studies/ aims to reflect on the new semantics of what constitutes Italian cinematic, television and media productions today.

Within the realm of a post-national and trans-cultural debate, the purpose of this CFP/ /is to refer to Italy as the unifying geo-cultural site for a contemporary discussion on translocal cinema. Contributions would explore Italy’s reconfigured geographical collocation along the reassessed connotation of Italian film and media as portrayed by filmmakers and media practitioners working within and outside the country as well as of filmmakers of the Italian diaspora.

This CFP intends to contribute to the debate on new and broader definitions of Italian cinemas and media by: examining the proliferation of filmmaking both within and outside the country; exploring why films produced outside Italy fit into notions of Italian filmmaking; considering whether foreign directors producing films in Italy could be factored into a larger definition of Italian cinemas; investigating new forms of independent films; and studying filmmakers of the Italian diaspora.

Proposals are invited on, but not restricted to, the following:

- Redefining Italian cinemas, television and media

- National and global constructions of Italian cinema

- Regional Film Commissions productions

- International co-productions

- Independent and experimental cinema

- New digital media, web-based visual texts, advertizing, the development of innovative trans-media and cross-media narratives, short films, long/short feature/documentary animation

- Italian dialects in cinema

- Italian cinema outside of Italy

- Italian filmmakers working on non-Italian-language films

- Transnational Italian film stardom
