CFP for edited anthology / Requiem for a Nation: religion, politics and visual cultures in post-war Italy, 1945-1975

Requiem for a Nation: religion, politics and visual cultures in post-war Italy (1945-1975)

The main objective of this edited collection is to examine the ways in which religion, culture and politics converge in configuring the contradictions of a post-war Italy's cultural history.

Starting from the assumption that to conduct a critical reflection on Italian post-war visual culture one must investigate the inevitable impact of Catholic religion on everyday life and its social, political and cultural dimensions, I choose the vantage point of cinema and visual culture to propose a critique and exploration of religion's influence on the Italian cultural and political landscape.
