This edited scholarly collection seeks to explore the ongoing usefulness of the noir label through attention to less heralded films that straddle genres, are difficult to categorize, or have been limited in academic study because of their identification with a single genre, style, star, or director. Our goal is not to expand the noir canon but to recover lost nuances and give new life to specific classical era (1930s-1959) films by exploring them through a noir lens.

The third issue of JAm It! (Journal of American Studies in Italy) will explore the relations between environmental transformations and migrations in the North American context from a multi-disciplinary perspective. While scholarship in American Studies has produced relevant contributions analyzing the historical and present contingencies of both endogenous and exogenous migratory flows, the complex relations between migrations and ecological change require further inquiry within the field.

Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale had an enduring cultural effect well before the world began so uncannily to reflect it. Notable hallmarks of its resulting renaissance include, among others, the following three. Bruce Miller’s ongoing television adaptation, on the one hand, beginning in April of 2017, its second and third seasons moving us a few years away from Gilead as an established dystopia, as depicted in the body of the novel, toward its eventual downfall, as acknowledged in its concluding “Historical Notes.” On March 26, on the other hand, shortly before the third season’s premiere, Renée Nault’s graphic-novel adaptation of the original appeared.
