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, New York: Cambria Press, 2010).
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.
