About Antonella Palmieri

Antonella completed a PhD in Film Studies at the University of East Anglia in 2012. She started teaching in 2008 and worked at Anglia Ruskin University and the University of East Anglia before joining the University of Lincoln in 2012. She specialises in film and teaches theory across the three years of the Lincoln School of Media Film and Television undergraduate programme. In her doctoral thesis, Passport to the Dream Factory: Hollywood and the Exotic Allure of Female Italian Ethnicity,  Antonella analyses the trajectories, personae and screen performances of four female Italian film stars who have worked in Hollywood cinema. She exposes how specific dominant discourses around stardom and cultural fantasies about gender, sexuality, whiteness and ethnicity have conjoined in American popular fantasies of Italian femininity, and demonstrates how these Italian film stars functioned from within their embedded position in American media texts to consolidate and enhance America’s sense of its national identity and place in the world.
