Research Interests

My research interests include: foreign language teaching and learning, use of technology in the Humanities for scholarship and language pedagogy, and 19th century Italy.

My current association with and continued work on a database project containing unpublished letters of a 19th century Italian author permits me to explore and better understand the individual, his work, and to re-create the artistic environment of his time.
