Research Fellow at Trinity College Dublin
My research explores media representations of Italian youth across time in a variety of popular media. In particular, I analysed representations of Italian youth in films, TV programmes and teen magazines from 1958 to 1975. I have also worked on literary representations of Bologna as an ‘urban mythscape’ for 1990s Italian youth. My current research explores self-representations of contemporary Italian youth on YouTube.
