Dr Selena Daly is an Irish Research Council ELEVATE Post-Doctoral Fellow based in UCD and at the University of California, Santa Barbara, where she also holds a Fulbright Scholarship. She completed her PhD in Italian Studies in 2010 and has also spent periods of study and research at universities in Italy (Rome III, Milan and Trento). Between 2010 and 2012, she was a Lecturer in Italian at Manchester Metropolitan University. 

Her current research focuses on the experiences and activities of the Italian Futurists during the First World War. The research is interdisciplinary in scope and lies at the intersection of cultural history, Italian studies and art history. It examines Futurist combat experiences, as well as the production and reception of Futurist wartime propaganda at the front lines and on the home front. The monograph based on this research is under contract with University of Toronto Press.

Selena has published articles in the areas of Italian history, literature and language learning, and her work has appeared in Modern Italy, Otto/Novecento and the Language Learning Journal.
