Short Bio

I am Associate Professor of English Literature at the University of Bologna where I teach British Romanticism. I am also the local representative of CISR (Inter-university Centre for the Study of Romanticism), which includes the Universities of Parma, Florence, Bari, Rome-Sapienza, Cassino, and Valle d'Aosta, and the coordinator of the PhD program in Gender and Women's Studies (EDGES).

My research interests include Romantic poetry, novel and drama; Gothic literature; Jane Austen and popular culture; women’s literaure and gender studies; and slavery literature. I also work on Victorian-period consumer literature (annuals and gift books) and Elizabeth Barrett Browning. My current research concentrates on Leigh Hunt and the Italian context with special attention to the periodical The Liberal.
