My research expertise is in Modernism and the discourses of subjectivity and dissent at the turn of the twentieth century. I also have research interests in translation theories and practices, having recently transcribed, translated and edited a 16th century manuscript as part of a British Academy funded project in collaboration with The University of Exeter, The University of Leeds and The University of Malta. Relevant to translation practices is also my translation of Silvia Evangelisti’s Nuns: A History of Convent Life (OUP), for the Italian publishing house Il Mulino.
