Grace Russo Bullaro

Grace Russo Bullaro, born and raised in Salerno, Italy, came to this country when very young. She holds a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature, and after teaching for more than 25 years in the English Department at City University of New York (Lehman College) is now Emerita. Her academic interests include cultural and intellectual movements. Her areas of specialization include American culture, identity politics in the US and Italy, and Italian cinema—with a particular focus on the work of directors Roberto Benigni, Lina Wertmüller and “migrant cinema”. She is the author of over 50 articles and 7 books in these academic areas. Among her books are: "Shifting and Shaping a National Identity: Transnational Writers and Pluriculturalism in Italy Today" and "The Works of Elena Ferrante: Reconfiguring the Margins". The latter is the first academic volume of essays published on Elena Ferrante’s fiction. And her monograph “Man in Disorder: The Cinema of Lina Wertmüller in the 1970’s” is to date the only full-length study of this important Italian film director. Professor Russo Bullaro is the Editor of the English Language section at La Voce di New York.
