In development, this collaborative co-research project will involve the Honorary Italian Consul in Belfast, Dr Federica Ferrieri, who is also a tutor in the Queen's Open Learning Programme, Maghaberry prison and the Nerve Centre. Other partners are being approached . Building on a highly successful project completed in 2018, we plan to to seek funding for an accredited workshop series in Italian, followed by a series focusing on a specific Italian novel to examine metaphors of what is involved in remaking a life. A drama will be developed and this will be filmed. The project will be evaluated and a critical commentary, situated in the relevant literature will be submitted to an international peer-reviewed journal.
