Dalila Missero is Post-doctoral Research Fellow at Oxford Brookes University, where she is working on a project on women’s transnational media memories and audience participation. Her research interests include feminist cinema history, audience studies, popular and transnational cinema. She has published essays on gender, sexuality and film in the journals Feminist Media Histories, About Gender, and The Italianist, and is about to publish her first monograph “Women, Feminism and Italian Cinema. Archives from a Film Culture” for Edinburgh University Press (January 2022).
She is interested in girlhood and its media representations in relation to (post)feminist theory and activism. Specifically, she explores issues of cultural translation and transnational circulation, and how Anglo-American feminist theories adapt or are challenged by other contexts and experiences. She is also interested in the project’s use of qualitative methodologies in film and media studies.
