Author Biography

Damiano Benvegnù, Dartmouth College

I hold a Ph.D. in comparative literature from the University of Notre Dame (2014) and a Dottorato di Ricerca in Italianistica (the Italian equivalent of a Ph.D. in Italian Studies) from the University “La Sapienza” in Rome (2007). My current research focuses on representations of animals and animality in modern literature, visual arts, and philosophy. I am also interested in literatures produced in peripheral languages (particularly by multilingual and diglossic communities), and in the interactions between aesthetics, history, and nature. I am an Associate Fellow of the Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics and the Creative Writing and Arts Editor for Ecozon@: European Journal of Literature, Culture and Environment.
