Dr Maria Luisa Di Martino is currently a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellow at the University Ca’ Foscari of Venice, working on the project REWRITE (EU-H2020 n. 101027193), which is focused on the identity transformation process of female migrant writers and the analysis of the female literary production in the 20th and 21st centuries as non-academic knowledge production. She is a Visiting Scholar at the Oxford Centre for Life-Writing, where she is delving deeper into the different forms through which lives can be written and performed. Moreover, at the OCLW she has the opportunity to learn from different writers and writing experiences. She holds a PhD in Human Rights at the University of Deusto (Spain) and two MAs in Globalisation and Development studies. She is part of the IMISCOE’s Migration Research Hub as an expert; and she serves as a peer-reviewer for the UNU-Network for the evaluation of the Global Combat on Migration (GCM). Since 2021 she has been a member of the Editorial Board in Humanities and Social Sciences Journal, Science Publishing Group, INC (NY). Her main research and publication interests are interdisciplinary, crossing intersectional, sociological perspectives, social psychology and literary productions, in order to better understand today’s societal challenges. The main aim of her work is focused on bridging the gap between the female universe in migration and mobility studies and the real impact of research on society and policy makers through life-writing and literary production. Therefore, she has started the ‘REWRITE Social Lab’ to promote social change through life-writing as a method for accompanying migrant/refugee women’s identity transformation processes.
