Research Statement

My research interests include the representation of terrorism in film and television, cultural memory and nostalgia, and the relationship between media and fashion industries. Specifically, my work explores gendered representations of victims and perpetrators of terrorism and how fictional media texts deal with traumatic past events.

I have published on European cinema, in particular Italian and German, vitage culture, social media (Instagram, Tinder) and fashion films.

My co-edited book Mediated Terrorism (Palgrave-MacMillan 2021) uses a range of cities and conflicts from Europe, North America, Asia, Africa and the Middle East to offer a comparative survey of the complex and controversial encounters between the spectacle of terrorist violence, traumatic memory and commemoration, as well as an insight into the political and ethical issues of representation and the balancing of forgetting and remembering.

My current research project deals with fashion documentaries. I am editing with Boel Ulfsdotter, Documenting Fashion (Edinburgh University Press 2022), which excavates and reassesses the role of documentary media in shaping our understanding of fashion across multiple platforms and different national contexts. It considers non-fiction fashion material in archives, television and film, exhibitions and online.
