Dean Anthony Julian Tamburri Publishes Two New Books
Calandra's dean, Anthony Julian Tamburri, has published two new books this summer. Signing Italian/American Cinema: A More Focused Look (Ovunque Siamo Press). "The essays in this book all share a common notion that a greater awareness of the potentiality of signification of sign functions is an indispensable tool for a more extensive understanding of how a film might signify-indeed, about how any text might signify." (from the introduction) (You can buy the book here.) The Columbus Affair: Imperatives for an Italian American Agenda (Casa Lago Press). "The Columbus Affair engages in the intellectual, crisscrossing zigzag of a quagmire that is the Columbus Affair and demonstrates the major complexities of such argumentation. The goal, modest it may seem, is to examine aspects of each side, with the hopes of spurring on an even greater discussion among all parties within our Italian/American semiosphere." (from the introduction) (You can buy the book here.)
