Tiziana’s work has focused on two main areas, African Theatre (especially Nigerian drama and the work of Femi Osofisan), and the representation of race, blackness, and the ‘Other’ in 19th-century and contemporary British theatre and popular performance. On these areas she has published widely, including one monograph on Nigerian theatre in English (2009), four edited collections, and several essays. She is currently writing a monograph on the representation of Blackness and African cultures in Georgian and Victorian drama. Tiziana is also interested in African literature more widely, including research and publications on speculative and crime fiction from Nigeria, Kenya and South Africa. Other interests include Postcolonial Italian literature, on which she published in 2005 the first collection of essays on the subject, and intersections between Italian and English literatures. The theatre of W.H. Auden, on which she published a monograph (2009), remains an ongoing passion.
