She revised a talk (which she gave at Duke University and at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro) on "Nostalgia and Homosexual Desire in Vernon Lee (1856-1935)" that will become a journal article, a shorter version of which will be published in Italian in a collection of essays on English literature and Italy, to be edited by Liana Borghi.
