Hi, I’m Alessandra. I am an Italian based in Sunderland, UK. I am a PhD candidate and academic tutor at the Centre for Research of Media and Cultural Studies of the University of Sunderland. My supervisor is Prof. Clarissa Smith (you can find more about her and her research here.

I did my BA in Visual Arts at the University of Bologna (Italy) and then I packed my bags to go and do an Erasmus Mundus MA in Women’s and Gender Studies at the University of Hull (UK) and at Utrecht University (The Netherlands). In my spare time you can find me at concerts, volunteering for various activism projects, and taking pictures.
