Biography

Paolo Bartoloni is Established Professor of Italian Studies at the National University of Ireland, Galway. Previously he taught in Italian and Comparative Literature at the University of Sydney where he was Founding Director of the program in International and Comparative Literary Studies.

He has published extensively on continental theory and philosophy, especially the works of Giorgio Agamben, Walter Benjamin, Martin Heidegger, Gianni Vattimo, and Mario Perniola, and their impact on the reception of authors such as Blanchot, Calvino, Caproni, and Svevo. His books and articles investigate temporal and spatial thresholds, stressing the inherent potentiality and interstitiality of modern art. He is currently working on the concept of thingness in European thought and art. Bartoloni is the author of On the  Cultures of Exile, Translation and Writing (Purdue UP, 2008); Interstitial Writing: Calvino, Caproni, Sereni and Svevo (Troubador Publishing, 2003); editor of Re-Claiming Diversity: Essays on Comparative Literature (La Trobe University, 1996), co-editor of Intellectuals and Publics: Essays on Cultural Theory and Practice (La Trobe University, 1997); and the thematic issue of the journal CLCWeb Ambiguity in Culture and Literature (Purdue University Press, 2010).
