Course summary

An emphasis on the contemporary characterises research in the Italian subject group. Research is interdisciplinary and collaborative and focuses on areas in Italian Studies which are often underexplored. A recent appointment in Italian history has added weight to the transnational dimension of Italian Studies at Liverpool.

Overview

Expertise in Italian Studies at the University of Liverpool provides support and inspiration for research projects ranging from the social meaning of language practices and cognitive analysis of fiction and film through to Postcolonial Studies and Oral History. A variety of approaches allows us to accommodate, amongst others, both interdisciplinary and data-driven projects.

Supervision in Italian Studies includes sociolinguistics (e.g. the linguistic landscape, minority languages, migrant languages and neo-plurilingualism, language policy and ideology, social dialectology); the sociolinguistics of dubbing and subtitling; Italian film and audiovisual studies; Italian crime fiction; cinematic adaptations of contemporary fiction; Italian media; popular culture; social and cultural history.

We particularly welcome research proposals that match those of our researchers, including linguistic landscapes, minority languages, language policy, crime fiction, cinema and media, cultural history and postcolonial studies.

Research themes

Our research themes are:

Linguistic Landscapes
Language Policy
Minority and regional languages
Popular fiction (in particular Crime fiction)
Cinema and media
Cultural mobility
Memory practices
Postcolonial Studies.
