Shelleen Greene is an Associate Professor of Cinema and Media Studies in the Department of Film, Television and Digital Media at the University of California, Los Angeles. Her research interests include Black European studies and digital feminist studies. Her book, Equivocal Subjects: Constructions of Racial and National Identity in the Italian Cinema (Continuum/Bloomsbury Press, 2012) examines the representation of mixed-race subjects of Italian and African descent in the Italian cinema, arguing that the changing cultural representations of mixed-race identity reveal shifts in the country’s conceptual paradigms of race and nation. Her recent work has been published in California Italian Studies, ADA: A Journal of Gender, New Media, and Technology and Future Texts: Subversive Performance and Feminist Bodies (Parlor Press, 2015). Her work has also been published in From Terrone to Extracomunitario: New Manifestations of Racism in Contemporary Italian Cinema: Shifting Demographics and Changing Images in a Multi-Cultural Globalized Society (Troubador Press, 2010) and Postcolonial Italy: Challenging National Homogeneity (Palgrave Macmillan, 2012).
