Fabio Camilletti

Biography and/or project

My specialism is nineteenth-century literature and culture from a comparative perspective (Italy, England, France, Germany). My research interests include phenomena of fracture, transformation and continuity in Western cultural tradition between the eighteenth and the twentieth centuries, problems of critical and literary theory (intertextuality, theories of quotation, studies on memory, literature and psychoanalysis), and the conceptualisations of historical past and individual memory in post-revolutionary Europe.
