Equivocal Subjects : Between Italy and Africa -- Constructions of Racial and National Identity in the Italian Cinema Paperback / softback
Analysing the depiction of African Italian mixed-race subjects from the historical epics of the Italian silent "golden" era to the contemporary period, Equivocal Subjects engages the history of Italian nationalism and colonialism through theories of subject formation, ideologies of race, and postcolonial theory.
Greene's approach also provides a novel interpretation of recent developments surrounding Italy's status as a major passage for immigrants seeking to enter the European Union.
This book provides an original theoretical approach to the Italian cinema that speaks to the nation's current political and social climate.
