Beatrice Collina

Prof. Beatrice Collina teaches in the Department of Italian Literature at the University of Bologna. Her research is focused primarily on the history of Renaissance and Baroque literature, in particular on Venetian female writers who addressed women’s issues between the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Some of her articles have been dedicated to biographies of notable women from this period and to theories regarding women in the Early Modern age. A student of Piero Camporesi, Prof. Collina has written widely on Italian Counter-Reformation authors, such as Giovan Battista Marino, Arcangela Tarabotti, and Tomaso Garzoni. She has published critical editions of Garzoni’s Le vite delle donne illustri della Scrittura Sacra and La piazza universale di tutte le professioni del mondo. For many years, Prof. Collina held research and teaching positions in the United States: she was a visiting scholar at the Regenstein Library in Chicago, held a course for the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures at the University of Chicago, and received a Fulbright Fellowship in the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures at Harvard University.
