Italian Studies in Montreal
Expertise in Italian Language and Literature is not confined to the Italian Studies department. Montreal has a rare concentration of scholars, both here at McGill and at other institutions, working in Italian Studies from a variety of disciplines: Literature, History, Art History, Sociology, Political Science, Anthropology, Medieval Studies.
Within McGill, Professors Anthony Masi, Sociology, and Filippo Sabetti, Political Science, Associate Members of the department, are both experts on contemporary Italy. Professor Masi has done extensive research into the effects of industrialization in the Italian South, while three of Professor Sabetti's publications are devoted to aspects of Italian politics: Political Authority in a Sicilian Village, Politica in Italia: I fatti dell'anno e le interpretazioni and The Search for Good Government: Understanding the Paradox of Italian Democracy.
The department's Associate Members also include History professor Paula Clarke. Professor Clarke is interested in the cultural history of the Italian Renaissance, is the author of a book on power and patronage in 15th-century Florence and has collaborated in the creation of a CD on Marco Polo, sponsored by the Italian Ministry of External Affairs.
Université de Montréal has professors with expertise in Italian studies: Elisabeth Schulze-Busacker, specializing in "Philologie romane" (Département de linguistique et philologie), Wladimir Krysinski, author of an important volume on Pirandello (Département de Littérature comparée), Bruno Boglioni and Bruno Ramirez (Département d'histoire) and Mariella Pandolfi (Département d'anthropologie).
