Role


My main research interests are the everyday and genered aspects of transnational film and media consumption. I am currently working on the qualitative audience project "Investigating Cinema Memories and Transnational Practices: A Qualitative Study with Female Latin-American Audiences in Barcelona and Milan", which explores aspects of affect, memory and identity formation in the everyday experiences of cinema-going, cultural consumption and leisure time in the communities of Latin American women based in Milan and Barcelona. I have also set up a Facebook page and Twitter account related to this project, aiming to disseminate research updates and information about Latinamerican films and practices of cinema-going.

I am the co-organiser of the NECS Online Lecture Series on Media and Migration, which proposes a shift from media narratives and the politics of representation to the methodological and epistemic issues related to the study of mediated migration.

In the past year, I have coordinated the webinars and activites of the TAP - The Audience Project research network at Oxford Brookes and I am member of the Migration and Refugee Research Network.

In parallel, I am publishing my first monograph “Women, Feminism and Italian Cinema: Archives from a Film Culture” for Edinburgh University Press (2022), that is an archival re-reading of post-war Italian cinema from the perspective of women's engagement with feminism.
