Research and Teaching Interests
Italian cinema, post-WWII cultures, fascism, national identity, gender studies
In 2015 I completed my undergraduate studies in English Literature and Italian at the University of Reading. In 2017 I graduated with an MA in Italian Literature and Language, with additional studies in literary theory, European Studies and American SLA (Second Language Acquisition) pedagogy from the University of Oregon.
My current research is based in the reception and marketing of Italian neorealist cinema in the United Kingdom and its presentation of British identities. Furthermore, my work investigates the presentation of gender and questions the authenticity of classed portrayals of subaltern cultures in Italian cinema.
