History, Art History

Most of these publications are in the field of Italian Studies, beginning with the Honours thesis that became the small monograph The Image as Body. In the field of Performance Studies, the collection Sonorities of Site foregrounds the voices of artists, focusing on a selection of projects generated through cross-artform collaboration.
