Curriculum vitae

Malvina Giordana is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow working on Film and Media Studies. Her interests focus on contemporary mediascape and Italian Cinema.In 2018 she obtained her Ph.D. in Visual Studies at Roma Tre University (Department of Philosophy Communication and Performing Arts) with a dissertation titled Media, Environment, Landscapes. From Linear Perspective to Cosmic View. Combining media archeology approach and cultural geography, the thesis draws a cultural history of the western landscape from the Renaissance’s perspective grid to data visualization, arguing that through the image of the landscape – both as an aesthetic object and as a virtual environment – the relation between subjects, objects, the natural and the technical has been constantly reshaped, requiring today a new epistemological framework to deal with contemporary forms of radical mediation. She has been a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in “Film, Photography and Television” at Roma Tre University for the following three years (2019—2022) and part of the national research project (PRIN) “Modes, Memories and Cultures of Italian Film Production from 1949 to 1976”, focusing on “below the line” cinema professions, combining research on modes of production with interpretative tools of Production Culture Studies and paying attention to the relations between industrial phenomena and cultural forces, such as working practices, languages, imagery.
