I'm currently doing my last term of a bachelor degree in film theory, at the university of Trondheim, Norway. This means that I will have to write my thesis in the following months. Having seen my fair share of gialli, as well as being a great fan of the genre, I have to chose to write about it. The thesis is still in the planning phase, and so far I think the thesis will be on the function of the genre's stylized violence (perhaps with a focus on narrative). The problem is, that I've found close to no literature on the gialli. I have ordered a copy of Koven's La Dolce Morte and I have a copy of Needham's Playing with genre : an introduction to the Italian giallo, but I would love to read some more on the subject. Do you have any suggestions to relevant literature? My Italian is quite limited, so I'm mainly after English books or articles.
I've sent Torbjorn some suggestions, but he's keen for more. You can email him at firstname.lastname@example.org
