I am currently Head of Research in the School of Languages, Literatures and Cultures and Director of CASiLaC (Centre for Advanced Studies in Languages and Cultures). I research across three distinct areas: Modern and Contemporary Sicilian Literary Culture; Neapolitan Autobiography in the Eighteenth-Century; The Poetics of Dante.

My main field up to now has been on modern and contemporary Sicilian literature (writers on which I have published include Verga, De Roberto, Pirandello, Sciascia, Tomasi di Lampedusa), and on the narrative poetics of Vincenzo Consolo in particular. I am currently co-editing a volume wirh N. Messina entitled Conchiglie da mari diversi: Scrittura e narrativa nell’opera di Vincenzo Consolo (Florence: Cesati)  as well as a translation of his 1992 novel Nottetempo, casa per casa.

Another field of interest is Dante and in 2013 I co-edited Art and Nature in Dante (with Jennifer Petrie). Two further volumes on Dante have been completed: War and Peace in Dante (published in 2015) and Dante and the Seven Deadly Sins (both with John C. Barnes, 2017). I have also recently embarked on a new research project which has as its focus autobiographical writing in Naples in the Eighteenth-century, with a particular focus on Giambattista Vico and Pietro Giannone and the History of Ideas and in 2014 I co-edited (with D. Trapassi) the volume: L'arte della scrittura delle vite: Contesti auto-biografici e autobiografismo nella letteratura italiana (Florence: Cesati, 2014). 

My undergraduate teaching covers some of these areas, especially Dante and the literature of the Early Modern period. I am one of the co-ordinators in the taught Masters in Comparative and World Literatures. And I also set up with colleagues in the School of Languages, Literatures and Cultures the new Masters in Translation Studies. I am happy to provide supervision on any of these areas.

I came to UCC in 2007 and have previously lectured in Trinity College Dublin and University College Dublin. I am a graduate of Trinity College (MA) and did a PhD at the University of Strathclyde. I was on the Executive committee for the Society for Italian Studies (SIS, 2009-2017). I am also on the editorial board for Civilt
