Personal profile

Biography

My main research interests lie in women's/gender history and in the history of Italian Fascism. Amongst other topics, I have published on the role of women in the Fascist Party; the history of the rural world; abortion; labour and business history; imperialism; the Fascist mass mobilising organisations; the Italian Resistance; the history of the private sphere; and on representations of motherhood in Italy and its diaspora. My most recent monograph explores the history of Italian women over the course of the twentieth century.

I was Chair of the Association for the Study of Modern Italy from 2006-09 and I am currently Vice-Convenor of Women's History Scotland.

I serve on the Editorial Board of Modern Italy journal and was a founder member of the Editorial Collective of Gender and History journal.

I have held Fellowships at the Einaudi Foundation (Turin), the European University Institute (Florence), IASH (Edinburgh) and Nuffield College (Oxford)

I was the 2019 Federico Chabod Visiting Professor in Contemporary History at the University of Milan
