Francesco Pascuzzi

Francesco Pascuzzi (Rutgers’14) Assistant Professor with the Rutgers English Department Writing Program.

I'm currently co-authoring the first English translation of Porpora Marcasciano's autobiography Antologaia with Dr. Sandra Waters, to be finalized for publishing by the end of the year.

In 2015, I edited 'Dreamscapes in Italian Cinema,' an anthology that examines the oneiric realm in Italian film history (Fairleigh Dickinson University Press), and I have since then published book chapters and essays on filmic representations of motherhood, mourning, and identity. I am currently editing a volume that considers the coding of space and place in world horror film, and I am researching a manuscript on heterotopias and horror film culture. My main field of research encompasses comparative and transnational studies between Italian and foreign cinema, and my current interests include modern and contemporary horror film, Hallyu and contemporary Korean cinema, Italian auteur film of the new millennium, and contemporary queer cinema.
