Current Student

Silvia joined the RLL Ph.D program at University of Chicago in 2012. Her interests include 19th and 20th century Italian literature, American and Comparative literature, Literary Theory and Linguistics. She plans to focus in particular on translation as bridge between cultures and literatures and as means by which authors have technically and thematically enriched their literary traditions. Silvia holds a BA in Italian Literature and an MA in Modern and Contemporary Italian literature, both from the University of Milan, Italy.
