Teresa Prudente received her PhD in Comparative Literature from
the University of Turin (Italy), where she currently teaches. She
has published articles in The Virginia Woolf Miscellany
and in The Journal of the Short Story in English and she
has taken part in several international symposia, such as The
International Virginia Woolf Conference and the James
Joyce International Symposium. She is a contributor for
The Modernist Journals Project and for the Italian
literary magazine L'indice dei libri del mese. She is the
author of A Specially Tender Piece of Eternity: Virginia Woolf
and the Experience of Time (Lanham, MD: Lexington Books, 2009)
and the co-editor, with Dr. Federico Sabatini of Cinematic
Strategies in the 20th Century Narratives and Beyond (Amherst,

Her research interests and publications focus especially on the theory of the novel, on the relation between Modernism, visual arts and cinema, and on linguistic experimentation. At the moment, she is exploring the connections between Virginia Woolf’s and James Joyce’s writings, and focusing on the linguistic and narrative experiments of Twentieth century Italian, English and American authors.
