Nicoletta Mandolini is a researcher in the areas of Cultural and Media Studies. Her main research interest is the study of representations of gender violence and other forms of gender-based discriminations. She is currently FCT Junior Researcher at CECS - Universidade do Minho, where she is working on the project Sketch Her Story and Make It Popular: Using Graphic Narratives in Lusophone and Italian Feminist Activism against Gender Violence (www.sketchthatstory.com). She previously worked as an FWO postdoctoral fellow at KU Leuven (Belgium). She owns a PhD from University College Cork (Ireland). Her doctoral project, funded by the IRC (Irish Research Council), focussed on the analysis of journalistic and literary portrayal of femicide in the Italian context and it resulted in the publication of the monograph Representations of Lethal Gender-Based Violence in Italy between Journalism and Literature: Femminicidio Narratives (Routledge 2021). She has published her research findings in top-ranked international journals in the area of Modern Languages, Italian, Gender, Comics and Communication Studies (e.g. Romance Studies; Italian Studies; The Italianist; Journal of Italian Cinema and Media Studies; gender/sexuality/italy; Journal of Graphic Novels and Comics; Problemi dell'informazione). She authored chapters in edited volumes published for Routledge and Palgrave McMillan and she co-edited the volume Rappresentare la violenza di genere. Sguardi femministi tra critica, attivismo e scrittura (Mimesis 2018). She is a member of the CASILAC research cluster on Violence, Conflict and Gender, which she co-convened from 2016 to 2019 and she is a founding member of the research group on Italian comics SnIF - Studying'n'Investigating Fumetto (www.grupposnif.it).
