Chiara Bonfiglioli

I am a Lecturer in Gender & Women’s Studies at University College Cork, where I also coordinate the one-year interdisciplinary Masters in Women’s Studies.

I hold a BA in Political Sciences from the University of Bologna, and an MA and PhD from the Graduate Gender Programme at the University of Utrecht. Between 2012 and 2014, I was a research fellow at the University of Edinburgh, within the framework of the CITSEE project (‘The Europeanisation of Citizenship in the Successor States of the Former Yugoslavia’). Between 2015 and 2017, I worked as a NEWFELPRO post-doctoral fellow within the Centre for Cultural and Historical Research of Socialism (CKPIS), University of Pula, Croatia. In 2016/2017, I was awarded an EURIAS Junior Fellowship at the Institute for Human Sciences (IWM), Vienna.

In the course of my research I have been focusing on transnational women’s, gender and feminist history, adopting an intersectional approach in all my projects and combining archival research with qualitative methods. I also make use of photography and visual material in my research and teaching.
