New book series: Trajectories of Italian Cinema and Media

Intellect is delighted to announce a new book series, Trajectories of Italian Cinema and Media, edited by Flavia Laviosa. This book series will build upon the success of the Journal of Italian Cinema & Media Studies - also edited by Flavia. Both the journal and the book series seeks to provide a forum for a diversity of voices and transnational perspectives on Italian cinema and media, and welcome proposals that discuss media as a distinct academic discipline focusing on theoretical approaches and aesthetics of texts within Italian social, political, economic and historical contexts. The series will publish its first title in early 2020. 

Trajectories of Italian Cinema and Media

Series editor: Flavia Laviosa

The book series Trajectories of Italian Cinema and Media intends to engage with diverse academic communities, build new conceptual frameworks and foster a globally-focused and representative corpus of scholarship in Italian cinema and media studies. With the aim to explore new critical and historical trajectories, this book series seeks to trace the evidence of Italian cinema's international polysemy and polycentrism, define the extent of its inspirational force, examine other cinemas' artistic innovations resulting from their osmosis with the Italian film tradition and foster comparative analyses of themes and genres between Italian and other world cinemas. 

The main goals of the book series are: 

1. To bring scholars, critics, journalists, filmmakers, film and media professionals, film festival organisers and students to facilitate a dialogue across critical approaches and creative practices;

2. To expand the horizons of interconnected areas of inquiries to revisit the past, study the present and envision the future of Italian cinema; 

3. To provide an arena for critical engagement and trajectories in studies on media and their interdisciplinary research into audiences and consumers, authors and producers, cultural history and geography, political regimes, or economic forces, the individual and the social, cultural and political dimensions of new media, the global and local dimensions of the relationship between media and social change.
