Jacqueline Reich received her Ph.D. in Italian literature from the University of California at Berkeley in 1994. She has published and lectured widely on Italian cinema, Italian American film, fashion and Italian cinema, and early twentieth-century physical culture in the United States and Italy.  She also curates the book series New Directions in National Cinemas for Indiana University Press. At present she is working on two book projects: a study of the Maciste films of silent Italian cinema (Forthcoming, Indiana UP), and a study of Italian masculinity and stardom (Forthcoming, Il Castoro). In Fall 2011 she was awarded a mid-career fellowship from the Howard Foundation at Brown University.  At Stony Brook she is also the Faculty Director of the Undergraduate College of Arts, Culture, and Humanities.
