Angelica De Vido

I am a scholar of twentieth and twenty-first century American literature and women’s history. My research examines the representation of gender, sexuality, and race in American novels, and I maintain a particular interest in cultural representations of American urban life, and in the history of feminist activism in the United States.  

I completed my DPhil at the University of Oxford in 2021, where I worked under the supervision of Dr Merve Emre. I am currently working on a monograph, titled, Bad Girls: Forms of Contemporary American Girlhood, which investigates the representation of ‘deviant’ girlhood in contemporary American literature.
