Giulia Maria Gliozzi is a second-year Ph.D. candidate in Italian Studies. She earned a bachelor’s degree in modern Italian Literature at the University of Rome "La Sapienza" and a second master's degree in Italian Studies from Boston College in 2022, working on Guittone d'Arezzo and writing a thesis in which she questioned the predominant reading of Ora parrà s'eo saverò cantare as a palinode of the amorous lyric focusing on the canzone civic expression and reflection of the Frati Gaudeti’s political propaganda.

Her research focuses on Italian authors from the thirteenth century, particularly Guittone d’Arezzo and Dante, focusing on their political roles. Her other academic interests include Guittone’s broader reception and twentieth-century Italian literature focusing on Rosetta Loy and other Holocaust female testimonies.

In 2022, She received the Dante Society of America Charles Hall Grandgent Award for best graduate student essay for her close philological analyses in "Osservazioni sulla misura in Dante: La directio voluntatis come sinonimo di rettitudine (solo) in quanto insieme di scelte moderate dalla misura.” In 2021, she received the Boston College Donald J. White Teaching Excellence Award for Graduate Teaching (2021).

Giulia is also interested in second language acquisition and collaborates with the Rare Books & Special Collections at Notre Dame and the Opera del Vocabolario Italiano Institute (OVI).
