CIS is an online, peer-review journal committed to publishing the finest, most innovative, and most potentially influential scholarly work in the field of Italian Studies today. CIS seeks contributions which meet the following criteria: interdisciplinarity; comparative study; critical reflection on theory and method. Contributions that make the most creative use of the journal's digital format are especially encouraged.
