Dr

Laura Lori

 

She holds the Inaugural ACIS Postdoctoral Fellowship in Italian Studies at University of Melbourne. After completing her PhD at La Trobe University, in Melbourne, Australia, she extensively published in Australia and overseas, including her monograph Inchiostro d’Africa on Postcolonial Somali Literature in Italian.

Her area of expertise extends from Gender and Cultural Studies to Performing Arts and Theatre Studies. She also conducted research on Italian Crime Fiction and Contemporary Literature. Her previous research project There Ain’t no Black in the Tricolore investigated the connections between postcolonial studies, global mobility and the ongoing social changes in contemporary Italy. Her current project Transcultural trajectories in Italian Theatre: new ways of inclusion through the performing arts explores how the re-writing and mise en scène of plays by Italian theatre companies and young migrants facilitates inclusion and challenges the discourse around nation and sovereignty.
