A quick note, following the conference’s conclusion yesterday afternoon, to thank all of the participants of the conference for helping to stimulate such vibrant and captivating dialogues on the contemporary Italian cinema. My colleague Mariarita & I are very happy with the event, and thankful both for all contributions and the kind words of our colleagues. Special thanks to Filippo Trentin, Gabriella Addivinola, Simone Brioni and Serena Bassi for helping keep the conference running, to Sue Dibben for doing pretty much everything, to Dr.s Jenny Burns and Loredana Polezzi for bringing reassuring words and a calming presence, and to the four panelists, Dr.s Bonsaver, O’Leary, O’Rawe and Vighi for seeing the event through and triggering such an interesting and lively debate.

The next step will hopefully be to form some kind of publication, which we are very excited about, and I’ll post a more detailed review of the event in the near future.

We are pleased to announce the participation of Fabio Vighi in the closing roundtable event, to take place on Sunday evening. Dr. Vighi (Cardiff) will join Dr.s O’ Rawe (Bristol), O’Leary (Leeds) and Bonsaver (Oxford) to discuss the key themes of the conference and trigger an open and vibrant discussion with all delegates.

Given his publishing background, and the large number of psychoanalysis- based interventions, we are quite sure that Dr. Vighi will bring an exciting perspective and contribute a great deal.

In the mean time watch this space for the final programme!
