I work at the University of New England in the high country of New South Wales. I teach and research in children’s literature and classical reception studies. I lead the Australasian wing of the ERC-funded Our Mythical Childhood project (Grant agreement No 681202) which traces the reception of classical antiquity in children’s and young adults’ culture. I am writing a Guide to the field of recent children’s literature inspired by classical antiquity.

Dr. Samuel N. Dorf is a musicologist and dance historian. He has published articles dealing with the performance and reinvention of ancient Greek music and dance in fin-de-siècle Paris, and queer music reception and has presented papers at history, queer studies, dance history, archaeology, and musicology conferences throughout North America and Europe. His research areas include intersections between musicology and dance studies and the history of technology, reception studies, queer studies, film studies, and the history of performance practice.

I am professor of English literature at Ca’ Foscari University of Venice (Italy) where I was Provost (Vice-rector) for the University cultural activities and relations, Director of the Department of Linguistics and Comparative Cultural Studies, Head of a BA programme in Modern Languages and Cultures, and of a Master programme in European, American and Postcolonial Literatures, and Rector’s Deputy for Cultural and Literary Activities. My prevalent area of research is the literature and culture of the long eighteenth century, but I’m also interested in contemporary literature, comparative literature and reception studies, and the interaction between literature and cinema. I direct a journal English Literature: Theories, Interpretations, Contexts, and a series, “Collana di Letterature Moderne”, both produced at Ca’ Foscari University of Venice. I direct the literary festival Incroci di Civiltà – Crossings of Civilizations, held yearly in Venice, for which I interviewed several writers, including Jeanette Winterson, V.S. Naipaul, Cees Nooteboom, David Grossman, Ian McEwan, Jonathan Coe.
