BIOGRAFIA

 

I graduated from the University of Rome with a focus on the cultural and intellectual history of the Franco-Algerian War. During my PhD, carried out jointly between the Universities of Rome and Paris, I came to focus on contemporary social frames of memory, particularly regarding French veterans. In so doing I joined the Institut d’histoire du temps présent (Ihtp, Paris).

Following this, I held fellowships at École des hautes études en sciences sociale (Ehess, Paris), Maison méditerranéenne de sciences de l’homme (Mmsh, Aix-en-Provence), and Centre d’histoire sociale du XXe siècle (Chs, Paris).

In 2015 I moved to Oxford as Marie Skłodowska-Curie Research Fellow at the Faculty of History, and I joined Trinity as Junior Research Fellow.

My research interests include: Twentieth-century France and the Mediterranean (especially focusing on Algeria and decolonization), history of representations and social uses of the past (memory studies, oral history and epistemology), critical theory and postcolonial studies (with a particular focus on the Mediterranean, and the relationships between France, Algeria, and Italy, in the past and in the present).
