  • Assistant Professor of Italian Culture and Chair of Italian Studies, University of Banja Luka
I am an Assistant Professor of Italian Culture and Chair of the Italian Studies program at the University of Banja Luka in Bosnia and Herzegovina. My research interests lie at the intersection between culture and economics, which I address by studying how economic ideas are construed and disseminated in cultural productions such as narratives, films, and dramas. My research on different historical periods such as early-modern England and Twentieth-century Italy has been supported by various learned societies and research institutions, such as the Mont Pélerin Society (USA), the Institute for Humane Studies (USA), the International Centre for Economic Research (Italy), the Institute for Research in Economic and Fiscal issues (France) and the Ministry of Science and Technology of the Republic of Srpska (BiH). I have published in English and Italian in peer-reviewed journals of intellectual history, history of economic thought, and literary studies alike. I am member of the Belém Circle, a Paris-based group of European economists and intellectuals who organise public debates and publish opinion articles on political and economic issues from a pan-European perspective. I am presently working on an introductory book on post-1945 Italian culture and an academic book on the response of Italian writers to the global financial crisis.
