Presentation of DESTINATION ITALY 5 June 2015, UCL

Dear all,
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.
