Università degli Studi di Napoli “L’Orientale” – DSUS


Celeste Ianniciello holds a PhD in “Cultural and Postcolonial Studies of the Anglophone World” from the University of Naples “L’Orientale”. Commencing from the relation between I/eye and place in female migrant subjectivities, her research analyzes the visual (auto)biography of female artists from Middle-Eastern and Mediterranean countries as a contrapuntal example set against the epistemology of geographical, cultural and sexual borders. She has participated in national and international conferences, and published critical essays on literature, cinema and the visual arts.
