Research interests

My research into journey narratives concerns broader issues of national and transnational cinema. I have published in this area in academic journals such as Alphaville: Journal of Media and Film Studies, Journal of Latin American Cultural Studies and Significação: Revista de Cultura Audiovisual. I have also contributed to online websites such as The Conversation, Mediático and The Platform. 



Research collaborations

In September 2010 I worked for the Cultural Sectors at the UNESCO Headquarters and I attended The Intergovernmental Committee of the 2005 Convention for the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions. I was nominated by the Brazilian Government as the national candidate for the UNESCO Keizo Obuchi Research Awards and my proposal, “Achieving Intercultural Dialogue through Indigenous Visual Arts: Brazil and Canada”, was selected by an international committee. Cluster: “Observatoire des Nouvelles Pratiques Symboliques”  https://en.unesco.org/fellowships/keizo-obuchi/fellow/natalia-appezzato-pinazza

In 2016, I was an invited speaker at the Centre of Latin American Studies at the University of Cambridge. 

In June 2017, I delivered a paper at Screen Conference on Cinema and Neoliberalism, where I presented in a panel including Dr Anna Cooper Reynolds (University of Arizona), Erica Stein (Vassar College) and Dr Louis Bayman (University of Southampton). The outputs will be part of a special edition of the journal The New Review dedicated to cinema and neoliberalism.
