Amy King is a lecturer in Modern European History at the University of Bristol where she specialises in the history and memory of Italian fascism, antifascism and neofascism. Her published research focuses on political martyrdom in far-right communities, and she has also published on the memory of the socialist leader Giacomo Matteotti.
Her first book, 'The Politics of Sacrifice: Remembering Italy's Rogo di Primavalle', examines the ways memory of an arson attack on a far-right family in 1973 has evolved over the past fifty years. It will be published by Palgrave Macmillan in January 2024.
Amy was previously a Pilkington Fellow at the British School at Rome, and a fellow at the Kluge Center, Library of Congress.
