I have published articles at the intersection between literature and philosophy (Silone), philology and aesthetics (Biamonti), and on poetry and translation. My doctoral thesis – entitled ‘The Diasporic Canon. American Anthologies of Contemporary Italian Poetry, 1945-2015’ – focuses on the reception and translation of the Italian poetic canon in the United States. This project was fully-funded by an Arts & Humanities Research Council Scholarship (AHRC) and an Oxford Scatcherd European Scholarship.
