Italian research seminar

‘Transmedial Representations of Maternal Identity’, Dr Alessia Risi, Department of Italian, UCC.

In this paper, Alessia Risi, who was awarded her PhD in October 2013 for a thesis on female figures in recent Italian crime fiction, explores contemporary fears and obsession with not being up to the role of motherhood and will identify how these anxieties are deconstructed (and denounced) in recent transmedial portrayals of Italian society: Alina Marazzi’s documentary film Tutto parla di te (Everything Talks of You, 2012), Loredana Lipperini’s critical essay Di mamma ce n’è più d’una (There Is More Than One Mother, 2013) and Nicoletta Vallorani’s novel Le madri cattive (Bad Mothers, 2011).
