Description

The Italian Cinema(s) Abroad conference seeks to examine Italian national cinema outside of national borders, and will reflect upon what happens when a reportedly strong national cinema is displaced abroad. Organized by members of the OSU Department of French and Italian and colleagues from universities in Rome and Milan, the conference will take place March 22-23 on the campus of @The Ohio State University. Conference organizers encourage the submission of papers on films made by Italians abroad, on travel films, co-productions, on colonial and post-colonial filmic texts, on films on emigrant communities or those that depict Italian workers abroad, and on international co-productions that question whether an “Italian cinema” even exists. The conference welcomes papers that look at the films themselves, their production histories, on their afterlife, on their reception, marketing, and distribution patterns, in cinemas and other venues.
