About the Author:

Ruth Glynn is Senior Lecturer in the Italian department at the University of Bristol, UK.

Review:

'Studies of Italian terrorism may be in their 'infancy,' as Glynn observes in her Afterword, but Women, Terrorism and Trauma in Italian Culture is a remarkably mature, thorough, rigorous study. The organization of the book speaks volumes about the originality of Glynn's approach and the depth of her cultural analysis. The development of the study is eminently sensible and makes for clear, excellent reading.' - Ellen Nerenberg, Hollis Professor of Romance Languages & Literatures, Wesleyan University, USA

"Glynn's book represents a very important contribution to a number of disciplines. Its thought-provoking discussion of trauma, referring both to victims and perpetrators, is further complicated by questions of gender and sexuality. Glynn's critical reading of 'the female face of Italian terrorism' through the study of diverse cultural representations (cinema, autobiography, novels) will make a lasting impact on our collective understanding of the last three decades of Italian history." - Giancarlo Lombardi, Professor of Italian and Comparative Literature, College of Staten Island and Graduate Center/CUNY, USA

"Women, Terrorism, and Trauma in Italian Culture is an original and topical addition to the existing literature. Accessible and engaging, Women, Terrorism, and Trauma will be valuable to scholars working in a wide range of disciplines, including history, gender studies, and trauma studies." - H-Italy

Book Description Palgrave MacMillan. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. 300 pages. Dimensions: 8.6in. x 5.7in. x 1.0in.Addressing cultural representations of womens participation in the political violence and terrorism of the Italian anni di piombo (years of lead, c. 1969-83), this book conceptualizes Italys experience of political violence during those years as a form of cultural and collective trauma. The intermittent clustering of cultural representations that feminize terrorism is interrogated in close relation to the psychological, social and political purposes served by such feminization at distinct historical moments. Ruth Glynn analyzes a broad range of texts including press reports, memoir, literary fiction and film, dating from the 1970s to the present with attention paid to the recent re-emergence of domestic terrorism and to cultural representations of the women of the New Red Brigades. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Bookseller Inventory # 9781137294067
