William Anselmi is Full Professor in the Department of Modern Languages and Cultural Studies at the University of Alberta, Canada. He has co-edited, edited, and co-authored several books as well as articles that span from multiculturalism to the post-human. His work addresses a broad range of areas, from Italian and Italian Canadian literature to the relationship between cultures of the word and "image eras," as well as a focus on cinema, television, media and environments of technological communications. Recent projects involve the exploration of narcissism vs. immortality in the deployment of post-human cultural apparatuses, the organic body, and cognitive capitalism/immaterial labour.
“Nolan is making evident, both through form and narrative, his criticism of the sweeping radicalization of cinematic work that has privileged the technological wonder of the movies over formulations of innovative and complex narratives that deal with human existence.”
