Marco Bellardi (PhD, Birmingham) is a Visiting Research Fellow at the Department of Italian where he lectures in Italian Culture and Language since September 2018. After obtaining his BA and MA in Modern Humanities at the University of Milan, he was the recipient of a College of Arts and Law Scholarship at the University of Birmingham and completed his PhD in 2018 with a thesis on the influence of film form in literary fiction. He is currently broadening this work and planning to turn it into a monograph. His research is informed by narratology, intermedia theory, multimodality, genre theory, and semiotics.

His broader area of research includes modern and contemporary culture, with a particular focus on the history and theory of cinema, 19th- to 21st-century Italian literature and the cultural exchange between writers and filmmakers.

His interests also include: cinema and national identities; literary stylistics, with a particular focus on writers characterised by a ‘simple’ style; the work and legacy of Giuseppe Pontiggia, Ottiero Ottieri, Ingmar Bergman, Michelangelo Antonioni.

Teaching: He teaches Italian language at all levels; he also lectures in film, twentieth- and twenty-first century literature and culture.
