Sarah Carey (Ph.D., UCLA, 2010) was an Andrew W. Mellon Fellow in the Humanities and is now a lecturer at Stanford University, where she teaches modern Italian literature and cinema for the Department of French & Italian. Her book, Envisioning Italy: Photography and the Birth of a Nation, is currently under review with University of Toronto Press. It will be one of the first full-length works in English to explore the intersections of photography, literature, and cinema and their connection to the emergence and evolution of the Italian nation-state. Sarah has published in Quaderni d’Italianistica, Italian Culture, La Fusta, Carte Italiane, The Image of the Outlaw in Literature, Media and Society, and Echioltremare. She has a number of forthcoming publications, which include an essay on the role of photography in Vittorio Imbriani’s 1867 novel Merope IV in the collection Enlightening Encounters Between Photography and Italian Literature (2012), and an invited chapter entitled “Film and Photography” in the Continuum volume on Italian cinema (2013). Sarah was also a featured guest on the Stanford radio show “Entitled Opinions.” To listen to her segment on the history of Italian cinema, click here.
