Research interests:

I specialise in the history and literature of 20th - century Italy, with a particular interest in women, the private sphere and the emotions.  I have edited an interdisciplinary study of women in Italy in the years 1945-1960 and I have published a monograph and various articles on the writer and resistance activist Giovanna Zangrandi.  I also work on the writer Alba de Céspedes.  My current projects include a study of the role of advice columns in Italy and an investigation into feminism and affect in 1970s Italy.  I co-organised the conference 'Italy and the Emotions: Perspectives from the 18th century to the Present' (Annual Conference of the Association for the study of Modern Italy, IGRS, London, 26-27 November 2009) and I am co-editing two volumes on the history of the emotions in Italy.
