Lorraine Mangione, core faculty member in AUNE’s Department of Clinical Psychology, “happens to be obsessed” with Shutter Island, she says. The film, directed by Italian-American Martin Scorsese, was the focus for Mangione’s talk about the film at the John D. Calandra Italian American Institute’s conference on Italian culture, April 28-30 in New York City.
The title of the conference was “Three Fs in Italian Cultures: Critical Approaches to
Food, Fashion and Film.” Mangione’s presentation was called “It’s way over the top . . . You know, that’s how Scorsese is: A Psychological Perspective on the Layers of Illusion in Shutter Island.”
She also presented two papers at the Calandra Institute’s first conference on Italian-Americans, mental health and wellness last October.
