Elena Boschi

Film studies scholar

Elena Boschi is an independent scholar and film curator based in Genoa, Italy. Her earlier research focused on the role of popular music in the representation of sexuality, gender, and class in Italian, Spanish, and British cinema. She was co-editor of a special issue of the Journal of British Cinema and Television on Gender, Ageing, and Sexuality in British Cinema After Thatcher with Christine Geraghty. Elena’s more recent research on alternative screening practices has informed her curation of interrupted screenings, in which participants discuss films in small groups during scheduled breaks rather than just at the end to promote a radical film experience. She has curated screenings in England, Scotland, and Italy, working primarily with film festivals, charities, and occupied spaces.
