I am a Lecturer in Italian at St Hilda's College and have obtained my PhD from the Faculty of English. I am particularly interested in literary translator studies and in collaborative translation (20th-21st century), from a genetic and archival methodological perspective. I have written on self-translation and retranslation in Italian, French, and English. My new project adopts feminist translation studies to look at the transmission of mountaineering literature and culture.
I first joined the Oxford Comparative Criticism and Translation (OCCT) Research Centre as an MSt student and it has been with me every step of the way. I co-convened the OCCT Discussion Group in 2019–2021, and I've then presented my new project on the translation of mountaineering literature as a speaker there in 2022. In 2021, I co-organised the OCCT conference Fictions of Retranslation with my colleague Rowan Anderson. I am now General Editor of the OCCT Review and I want to use this role to support younger academics, sharing what I have learned thanks to the gracious mentoring of many previous OCCT members.
