Susanna Barsella's main area of research is Italian Medieval literature and the literature of Early Humanism. Her research and teaching are interdisciplinary, and focus primarily on literature, the fine arts, philosophy, and theology. She has published on Dante, Petrarca, Boccaccio, Michelangelo, on the idea of work from antiquity to the Middle Ages, and also on twentieth-century literature (on poetry, Gadda and Pirandello). Her works have appeared in Romance Quarterly, MLN, Studi sul Boccaccio, Italian Quarterly, Italica, and in various essay collections, including, most recently, The Panoptical Petrarch: A Life's Work (1304-1374) edited by V. Kirkham and A. Maggi (U of Chicago P, 2009). She is currently working on the theological and philosophical implications of the concepts of work in early humanistic texts.
