"Il buono amore è di bellezza disio"
Beauty is a central concept in the Italian cultural imagination throughout its history and in virtually all its manifestations. It particularly permeates the domains that have governed the construction of Italian identity: literature and language. The Idea of Beauty in Italian Literature and Language assesses this long tradition in a series of essays covering a wide chronological and thematic range, while crossing from historical linguistics to literary and cultural studies. It offers elements for reflection on cross-disciplinary approaches in the humanities, and demonstrates the power of beauty as a fundamental category beyond aesthetics.
A Critical Journal
Editor-in-Chief: Eva Jørholt
Associate Editors: Ana Grgić, Olivia Khoo, and Jeremi Szaniawski
Studies in World Cinema: A Critical Journal takes a pluralistic, polycentric and non-normative approach to the notion of ‘world cinema’ understood as a dynamic and all-inclusive concept. From a wide range of methodological perspectives, the aim is to inquire into both local and global cinematic practices as well as their interaction and contact zones, in both a historical and a current context, with a keen eye for the imbalances of power regarding access to and visibility in the global market.
Against this background, the journal invites contributions from scholars across the world on topics such as traveling cinematic tropes, creolization, transnational practices, global genres, remakes and rip-offs in new contexts, translation cultures, migrant and diasporic films and film cultures, collaborations and exchanges among filmmakers, co-productions and multinational filmmaking practices and networks, film festivals, films with ‘multinational themes’ such as globalization and climate change, the impact of new technologies on the international distribution of cinema, films which engender novel senses of the world in different cinematic practices, as well as theoretical discussions of the very idea of ‘world cinema’ and related concepts such as transnational cinema, but the list is far from exhaustive.
The journal also publishes themed special issues, for which contributions are invited from guest editors.

All articles undergo a double-blind peer review prior to publication.
