Italian Gothic part of Festival of the Gothic

Runs from Tuesday, October 31 to Wednesday, November 01.

On 31 October-1 November 2023, the SMLC will host the event Italian Gothic, organised by Prof. Fabio Camilletti as part of the Italian Seminar Series and within the framework of the ‘Gothic Week’ co-ordinated by Dr Jen Baker (English) across the Faculty of Arts. The event will be composed of three parts:

- 31 October, 19:00-21:00, Transnational Resources Centre, FAB. Film night, organized in conjunction with the Warwick Cinema Seminars and led by Jacopo Francesco Mascoli (PhD candidate, SMLC), addressing the long-lasting, transnational legacy of Italian Gothic Cinema through the discussion of clips from selected films and TV series.

- 1 November, 14:00-16:30, room tbc. A workshop, organized in conjunction with the Warwick Comics Research Network, on Italian Gothic-Horror comics in translation. The workshop will be led by Prof. Camilletti and Silvia Vari (PhD candidate, SMLC), with the participation of Dr Stefano Serafini (University of Padua), and will focus on Dylan Dog, Italy’s most popular horror comic book, whose first issue appeared in 1986 and which has acquired a cult status since then. Created by Italian novelist Tiziano Sclavi, Dylan Dog is an ‘Occult Detective’ narrative taking place in a fictitious, highly Gothicized London, whose cityscape is intentionally constructed by Sclavi, with a remarkable postmodernist attitude, through the lenses of pop culture broadly intended (literature, cinema, comics, rock and pop music). The workshop, which will be interactive and will foresee activities directly aimed to UG students, will specifically focus on the short-lived adaptation of Dylan Dog made by Dark Horse Press, exploring issues of translation, cultural representation, and transnational exchanges from a quintessentially trans-medial perspective.

- 1 November, 17:15-19:00, room tbc. A roundtable, organized in conjunction with the University of Padua, on the theme of Italian Gothic between literature and politics. The roundtable will witness the participation of Dr Simona Di Martino (Warwick SMLC, MHRA fellow), Francesco Dimitri (London-based Italian novelist), Dr. Marco Malvestio (University of Padua/University of North Carolina), Dr. Stefano Serafini (University of Padua), and Dr Mark Storey (Warwick, English). The occasion for the roundtable is the recent publication of Italian Gothic. An Edinburgh Companion, co-edited by Dr Malvestio and Dr Serafini for Edinburgh University Press and including contributions, among others, by Prof. Camilletti and Dr. Di Martino
