    Role in the committee:
    Secretary

    Bio and research interest :
    After a year in Linguistics at the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM), Riccardo Chmielowiec will soon finish a BA in Comparative Literature at the University of Montreal. In the meantime, he is completing a Honors thesis under the supervision of Professor Barbara Agnese on Italian foibe literature and the Istrian exodus. More specifically, he is interested in the capacity of prose to mold History and its representation, thus rendering literature a contemporary historical discipline. His interests are manifold, but he is most passionate about studying the ties between literature and history, language(s), metaphor theory, faith and the religious. He is considering the prospect of pursuing a MA in Literature and History in Italy.
