I have presented this work as my senior seminar final paper for Italian, I have not submitted it to the IRB becuase it is not finished yet, as the final draft is not finished.

Abstract (300 words maximum)

I have been studying Italian contemporary author Giulia Niccolai for 2 semesters with Dr. Santini, and I am currently writing my final paper for senior seminar on her life, work, and her role not only in Italian literature, but in feminism. Also, I discuss how she is one of the most underrated authors in Italy, and why she deserves more recognition, based on her work in photography, literature, and art. The following is a short introduction and the thesis from my paper:

Italian is one of the languages that gave birth to some of the most significant and important authors, especially in contemporary literature and the Renaissance. They influenced the history of literature not only during the Renaissance, where some of the best writers of all time, such as Petrarch, Dante and Boccaccio became figures, but in the 20th century, when authors such as Umberto Eco and Giulai Niccolai were framed in Italian literary history .Although Eco is more known and has received more credit, many experts in contemporary literature argue that Niccolai has had a greater impact, especially from a feminist point of view. Although Niccolai was one of the most underrated authors of her time, due to her vast areas of expertise and experience in poetry, translation and photography, she was one of the most important authors of contemporary Italian literature. There was not another Italian author so innovative in his works like her.
