Senior Lecturer in Italian

I have been working at Dartmouth College since 2016. In 2015, I was the Lauro de Bosis Fellow at Harvard University. My research focuses on the mechanisms of the American reception and legitimation of post-WWII Italian Literature, in key translators, publishers, literary critics and academics, and opinion makers ( “Calvino Translated, Translating Calvino, Calvino Translator”, ACME, Ledizioni, 1/2018, 213-222). Before Harvard, I was a lecturer in Italian at Stanford University from 2013-15 where I received my Ph.D in Italian Studies in June 2012 with a dissertation entitled Il mestiere di scrivere: Italo Calvino e Natalia Ginzburg: posizioni, pratiche, opere, di due professionisti della scrittura, a project that examines the intersection of fictional writing and editorial work in the careers of two of post-war Italy’s leading literary figures. In both of the degree programs I pursued in Italy and France prior to the American doctoral studies (Laurea in Lettere and Laurea in Beni Culturali), I was engaged with the question of cultural transfer, particularly its material and social history.
