Carol Lazzaro-Weiss studies the fiction of twenty-five contemporary Italian women writers. Arguing for a notion of gender and genre, she runs counter to many Anglo-American and French feminist theorists who contend that traditional genres cannot readily serve as vehicles for feminist expression.

Professor of French and Italian at the University of Missouri, Carol Lazzaro-Weis is President of the American Association of Italian Studies, the largest association of university professors of Italian in North America, and serves on several editorial boards.
