My research spans from the origin of the Western tradition to the present with a special focus on 18th-19th-20th-21th centuries. My approach is historical and philological with a strong interdisciplinary outlook as evidenced by my publications where literature, history of languages and dialects, poetry, music, opera, theatre, cinema, history and memories, sociology and pedagogy are intertwined and woven together through different perspectives (from structuralism to post-colonialism). I have published three monographs (on poetry, history, theory of literature respectively), two co-authored books (on history of food, literature), three co-edited books (literature, philology, post-colonialism), one special issue of a peer-reviewed journal (on comparative literature and translation), a book translation, numerous articles in peer-reviewed journals, book chapters, book reviews in peer-reviewed journals, and a book of creative writing. I have a growing presence in the media, which includes online videos, newspaper/journal/radio interviews, documentaries in which I talk about my research.
