Michela Bertossa obtained both a Bachelor and Master of Arts at the University of Zurich in Italian Language and Literature with secondary interests in History, Gender Studies and Islamic Culture and Society. Her M.A thesis focused on sociability and women's writing during the Risorgimento and post-unitary Italy. In 2015, she was an exchange student at the Institute of Cultural Studies of the University of Leipzig, Germany.
Her actual area of interest is on Italian women writings from the 19th to the early 20th century with special attention to the literary production focused on the experience of emigration during the Italian diaspora.
