About Me

I am Adjunct Professor in North American History at the Humanistic Department of Roma Tre University, Rome, Italy. My research interests focus on the history of Canada and the United States, and the relationship between cultural and social rights in Canada. My most recent publications cover US environmental policy, Canada’s sovereignty over the lands and waters of the Arctic. In past I have obtained a Canada Grant (2012) at the John-F.-Kennedy-Institut für Nordamerikastudien, Freie Universität Berlin, a Faculty Research Grants/Bourses de recherche International Council for Canadian Studies (ICCS) (2007), and a Travel Grant from the Italian Association for Canadian Studies (AISC) (2006).
