Vanda Wilcox graduated with a B.A. (Hons) in Modern History (First Class) from the University of Oxford where she then completed a Masters in Historical Research and a D.Phil. in History. Her doctoral thesis focused on morale and discipline in the Italian army during the First World War.
Her research interests focus on the military, cultural and social history of the First World War in Italy, as well as the memory and commemoration of the two World Wars. She is also interested in sports history, particularly Italian football culture. Her current research focuses on the Italo-Turkish war (1911-12) and on the colonial and imperial dimensions of Italian participation in the First World War. At John Cabot she teaches courses in European and Italian history in the nineteenth and twentieth century as well as on the World Wars, the history of imperialism, memory and popular culture, and modern sports history.
