As many of you know, film scholar and reviewer Peter Brunette passed away
suddenly on June 16 at the Taormina Film Festival. More information and a
number of highly deserved tributes can be found at:

Among many other things, Peter was in the midst of editing the Blackwell
Companion to Italian Cinema when he died. I have been in touch with Jayne
Fargnoli of Blackwell, and she has asked me to take the project forward.
Unfortunately, we lack up-to-date information on whom Peter contacted and
for what. I have a partial list as of February, but am sure that there are
others he contacted since. I will be getting in touch with everyone on that
list. HOWEVER, would anyone who has committed himself or herself to the
project please confirm that with me. I would appreciate a copy of your
correspondence with Peter indicating what you are doing. I would also
appreciate an update on your progress. If you know of others who have
committed, I would appreciate their names and contact info. Lastly, if
anyone knows how to contact Nicole Brenez (Université Paris 1) I would very
much appreciate the information. She is the only person on the February list
for whom I cannot find contact info.
 
Thanks very much.
