research overview

  • My research has focused on the early modern Italian fairy tale and its relationship to the discourses of monstrosity, science, and gender. Currently, I am working on the intersection of emotions (love), literature, and the law for a monograph tentatively titled 'Love on Trial in Renaissance Italy.' I am particularly interested in the ways that a new information technology (printing) shaped the discourse on love and the law. I am also active as a translator and editor of early modern Italian texts.
