Using cultural studies and postcolonial theory, my work analyses the literary and cinematographic representation of migrations and Italian colonialism. My articles have been published in edited volumes and peer-reviewed journals including Altreitalie, Cinergie, Écritures, Incontri, Science Fiction Studies, Studi Culturali, and The Journal of Italian Cinema and Media Studies. I edited the bilingual volumes (Italian and English) Somalitalia. Quattro vie per Mogadiscio (Roma: Kimerafilm, 2012) and Aulò! Aulò! Aulò! Poesie di nostalgia, d’esilio e d’amore (Roma: Kimerafilm, 2012) by Ribka Sibhatu, which respectively contain the documentaries Aulò. Roma postcoloniale and La quarta via. Mogadiscio Italia, for which I was co-director and co-author. I have published the monographs J.G. Ballard: Il futuro quotidiano (Siena: Prospettiva, 2011) and The Somali Within: Language, Race and Belonging in ‘Minor’ Italian Literature (Oxford: Legenda, 2015).
