In 2016 Giada published her first book with Cambridge Scholars Publishing, Male Perspectives in Atwood’s “Bluebeard’s Egg” and Hazzard’s The Transit of Venus. The book investigates two re-writings of the fairy tale of Bluebeard, Margaret Atwood’s Bluebeard’s Egg and Shirley Hazzard’s The Transit of Venus, from the perspectives of male and queer studies, revealing how both illuminate contemporary concerns with gender and sexuality.
Giada explains her reasons for, and experience of, publishing with Cambridge Scholars:
“I decided to publish with Cambridge Scholars Publishing because, as a researcher and a scholar, I strive to write up high-quality papers and monographs with the aim of providing theoretical insights and sharing my findings worldwide. My monograph represented the start of my academic career. Cambridge Scholars collaborated with me at every stage of the process, and I was glad to see that they truly value their relationships with their authors.
The monograph was the means through which my academic research promoted reflections on gender and diversity-related courses and projects, as well as fostering material for publication in the fields of male studies and gender studies at large. I am very proud of it, and the help of Cambridge Scholars was absolutely precious.”
