Biography and/or project

In general my research has focused on the visual representation of the past in different media, and its relationship to the formation of historical consciousness, or, what I call historic(al) imaginaries. My work on the fascist vision of history has also led me to theorize the distinction between “historical” and “historic” modes of representation, and imaginaries. Recently, I have been applying this theoretical paradigm to the study of digital forms of historic(al) representation as well as to the so called ‘spatial turn’ in the humanities.
