please join us at UCL on Friday 5 June for the presentation of Destination Italy: Representing Migration in Contemporary Media and Narrative. The editors will be present.
Venue: UCL, Gower Street, WC1E 6BT London | South Wing G12 Council Room
The product of a two-year interdisciplinary research project into
representations of migration to Italy, this volume brings together
scholarly contributions from the fields of migration studies,
linguistics, media, literature and film studies as well as essays by
practitioners and activists. It provides both a multi-faceted snapshot
of how diverse representations of immigration capture experiences and
affect decision-making dynamics and an in-depth study of how media,
literature and cinema contribute to the public perception of migrants
within the destination culture.
