Iuri Moscardi

My name is Iuri Moscardi and I was born in Italy in 1986. In my home country I studied Contemporary Italian Literature at Milan University, focusing on the works of Cesare Pavese as novelist and translator. My Master Degree’s Thesis was awarded the Cesare Pavese National Prize. After my graduation, in 2014 I moved to Bloomington, Indiana, where I attended Indiana University and I obtained a MA in Italian. Finally, in 2016 I moved to New York City to start my PhD in Comparative Literature at CUNY Graduate Center, working with professor Giancarlo Lombardi. My main research interests are Contemporary Italian Literature and Digital Humanities: I am relying on these two theoretical fields in my research, focused on TwLetteratura and Betwyll social reading projects.
