Book Launch: Italian Women’s Autobiographical Writing in the XX Century - By Ursula Fanning (UCD)

Dr Ursula Fanning is Associate Professor in Italian Studies at the School of Languages, Cultures and Linguistics in University College Dublin. She is a member of the Boards of Doctoral Studies for Italian and for Comparative Romance Literatures at the Istituto Orientale, Naples, as well as of the editorial board of the Women and Gender in Italy book series, published by Classiques Garnier. She has published extensively in the areas of nineteenth and twentieth-century women’s writing, as well as on the theatre and narrative of Luigi Pirandello. Most recently, she has contributed to the AHRC-funded project ‘La mamma italiana’ as well as to volumes on Annie Vivanti, Anna Banti and on space and place in contemporary Italian women’s writing. Her monograph, Gender Meets Genre: Woman as Subject in the Fictional Universe of Matilde Serao was published in 2002.

The book she presents highlights the centrality of the autobiographical enterprise to Italian women's writing through the twentieth century - a century that has frequently been referred to as the century of the self.


The event will be introduced by Sharon Wood, Professor (Emerita) of Italian at the University of Leicester. Her books include Annie Chartres Vivanti: Transnational Politics, Identity and Culture (edited with Erica Moretti, 2016), and the indispensable Italian Women’s Writing, 1860-1994 (1995).
