Background

I teach courses and write on early Italian and Old Occitan literature, history and manuscript culture, textual editing, history of the book. I am especially known for my critical and editorial work on Petrarch, the notion and application of "visual poetics" in medieval texts, the "textual cultures" of medieval and Renaissance Italy and Occitania, and my essays on Dante, Guittone d'Arezzo, and Monte Andrea. Series Editor of "Textual Cultures: Theory and Praxis" (Indiana University Press), I am the Editor-in-Chief of Textual Cultures: Texts, Contexts, Interpretation (formerly TEXT [Society for Textual Scholarship]) and Associate Editor of Medioevo letterario d'Italia, Dante Studies, Heliotropia, and Letteratura Italiana Antica.
