Joshua King is a Ph.D. student in Italian Literature and Cultural Studies at the University of Connecticut. He is primarily interested in Contemporary Italian Literature and Cinema and his current research interests include the links between contemporary cultural production and migration in Italy.
He has spent time living in Bologna and has travelled extensively around the peninsula. His interests and experiences in Italy have given him a breadth of perspective regarding both his own culture, as well as those of Italy, for which he is grateful. In his classes he enjoys helping students develop ways of approaching Italian culture so they may begin to broaden their own perspectives in similar ways.
