Federico Sabatini

02-11-1973 -

Born in Assisi in 1973, he studies European Languages and Literatures at Perugia University and graduates in English Studies in 1998 with the dissertation “The (Auto)biographical Genre in the Light of Gender”.

Following a European Commission Scholarship, he moves to London where he lives for seven years, teaching Italian Language and Literature, and working for the Tate Gallery Archive and Information Department.

In 2007, he has been awarded a PhD in Comparative Literature at Turin University (Italy) where he’s currently teaching. The book derived from his dissertation (Im-marginable: Lo spazio di Joyce, Beckett e Genet, Rome: Aracne 2007) examines various conceptions of space in Joyce (and compared to Beckett and Genet) in the light of the epistemological thought, both modern and ancient, as well as the relationship between space and the body in the act of writing. The book has been shortlisted for the Italian Carver Book Prize in 2008 (premio Carver, saggistica, 2008).

He is the author and editor of the book Joyce. Scrivere pericolosamente, a collection of passages by James Joyce on the art of writing, for Minimum Fax, Rome and of Le voci del Sublime di Percy Bisshe Shelley (Faligi, Aosta, 2012)

Besides appearing in collections of Joyce’s studies and in journals of literary criticism, he writes fiction and book-reviews for several art-literary magazines, including "Secretum" (Milan), "L’indice" (Turin), "The Anachronist" (Budapest) "Nebula-Nobleworld" and "Comparative Literature Studies" He has also featured in two short-story collections (Diabolic Tales: An Anthology of Dark Minds, 2007; Diabolic Tales: An Anthology Conceived in Desire, 2008) published by Diabolic Publications (North Carolina, USA).

His research interests are Literary and Artistic Modernism (Joyce, Beckett, Pound, Woolf); Classical and Modern Philosophy (Plotin, Bruno, Bachelard, Merleau-Ponty, Foucault); Gender (Strachey, Forster, Woolf and Genet) and intertextuality (Giordano Bruno, Giacomo Leopardi, Dante). He has recently started a new research project on visuality and literature by taking into account cognitive sciences and the broader realtionship between Literature and Science and Literature and Visual Arts.
