Ruth Ben-Ghiat

Ruth Ben-Ghiat
Ruth Ben-Ghiat is Professor of Italian Studies and History at New York University. She has received Guggenheim, Fulbright, Library of Congress, Getty, and NEH fellowships for her work about war, fascism, empire, and the politics of images. 

Ben-Ghiat explores how people act in contexts of crisis and oppression, from living under dictatorship and colonial rule to survival in wartime. Using archival documents, diaries, and letters, she renders the despair and hope that characterize such moments.
