Christopher G. Wagstaff Italian Film Collection Launch

April 6 at 5pm, Scholars Lounge, Hesburgh Library

The Christopher G. Wagstaff Italian Film Collection will be formally incorporated into the Hesburgh Libraries’ Collections on Thursday, 6 April 2017. The centerpiece of the event is a short talk by Professor Chris Wagstaff, formerly of the University of Reading in the UK, whose kind donation of his film collection has substantially enriched Notre Dame’s Italian film holdings. As a result, the Hesburgh Libraries will house one of the foremost international collections of Italian films.

Presentations by Chris Wagstaff (Reading), Zyg Barański (Notre Dame-Cambridge), Tracy Bergstrom (Notre Dame) and Brendan Hennessey (SUNY Binghamton)

Reception to follow
