Personal profile

Biography

Laurea Filosofia (Università La Sapienza, Roma), Ph.D (Victoria University of Wellington, NZ)

Before moving to Melbourne, I worked in Italy and New Zealand. My areas of research are within modern and contemporary literature and culture with emphasis on crime fiction, popular culture, and literary geographies. I have worked on 20th and 21st  century writing, cultural representations of space, and re-interpretation of history in literature and films.  I am the author of  "Investigating Italy’s past through Crime Fiction, Films and TV Series: Murder in the Age of Chaos" (Palgrave McMillan, 2016);  "Politics and Society in Italian Crime Fiction. An Historical Overview "(McFarland,2014) and "The Importance of Place in Contemporary Italian Crime Fiction. A Bloody Journey" (FDU Press/Rowman&Littlefield, 2102). As an adjunt supervisor I am supervising a PhD thesis on Andrea Camilleri's crime writing.
