Areas of expertise My research interests lie in late twentieth-century Italian culture and include representations of the anni di piombo; postmodernism; the historical novel and philosophy of history. My current research project examines how Italy's experience of political violence and terrorism in the anni di piombo is articulated as trauma in memoir, fiction and film.
