Andrea Rizzi

 

Andrea Rizzi is Cassamarca Associate Professor of Italian Studies at the University of Melbourne. Born in Rome and raised in Italy in a bilingual family, Andrea was trained as a scholar and teacher at the Universita' Statale di Pavia (Italy) and the University of Kent at Canterbury (UK).

Before coming to The University of Melbourne (2005), Andrea held positions in the UK, at the University of Western Australia, and at the University of South Australia.

Between 2015 and 2019 Andrea has been an Australian Research Council Future Fellow.

In 2010-2011 he was awarded the Harvard University's Deborah Loeb Fellowship at the Villa I Tatti Center for Italian Renaissance Studies.

Andrea is an early modern literary and translation history scholar with an interdisciplinary approach to the study of this significant period of European culture: having been trained as a philologist as an undergraduate student at the University of Pavia (Italy), Andrea then developed a focus on the transmission and tradition of historical Latin texts throughout the Italian Renaissance. Cultural history, literature, and translation studies are therefore the three interconnected streams of Andrea's research.

The Power of the Translator: a New History of Cultural Change and Communication

Translators are crucial agents of cultural exchange. Understanding how translators construct and perform their role is vital to comprehend societies' conceptions of language and culture. The project's aim is to provide new insight into the translators' role in shaping the modern western world. It will be achieved by studying the voices of translators as they emerge from manuscripts, prints, and archival documents of the Renaissance, one of the richest periods of cultural interaction between Latin, Greek, and local languages. This project will produce a new history of cultural change and enhance our understanding of the translators' agency in global communication.
