Alan O'Leary (University of Leeds)
I am visiting the University of Mumbai in July and August 2013 to teach a course entitled 'Italian Cinemas/Italian Histories', which continues a course I taught, also in Mumbai, in summer 2011. This blog is intended as a record of my preparation and experience of the course, and I hope the material here will be useful for students and others. 'Italian Cinemas/Italian Histories' is the name of a long term project I am developing with the support of the University of Leeds.
My very sincere thanks are due to my hosts at Mumbai: Dr. Vidya Vencatesan and Dr. Roberto Bertilaccio of the Dept. of French, and Dr. Shobha Ghosh of the Department of English. I also owe thanks to the Department of Civics and Politics for allowing the use of their wonderful lecture hall. Finally, I acknowledge with gratitude the Italian Embassy Cultural Centre in New Delhi and its director Dottoressa Angela Trezza, as well as the Consulate General of Italy in Mumbai for making my visit possible.
