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), and the coordinator of the PhD program in Gender and Women's Studies (EDGES) at LILEC.

My research interests include Romantic poetry (Letitia Elizabeth Landon and Byron), novel (Jane Austen) and drama; political writing (Leigh Hunt); Gothic literature (Ann Radcliffe); 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). My current research concentrates on Leigh Hunt and the Italian context with special attention to the periodical The Liberal.
