#18 Southeast European History with Chiara Bonfiglioli and Rory Archer

In this episode the historians Chiara Bonfiglioli and Rory Archer give us insight into their research on women's and gender history in Southeast Europe in the 20th century. They talk about their individual research projects on Albanian private sector workers and the textile industry, different research approaches, and intersectionality.

Chiara Bonfiglioli is an assistant professor of contemporary history in the Department of Humanities at Ca’ Foscari [ga foskari] University of Venice, Italy. She is the Principal Investigator of the ERC Consolidator project titled WO-NAM: Women and Non-Alignment in the Cold War era: biographical and intersectional perspectives.
