My current research is part of an Erasmus+ project titled Essays beyond borders (EBB), in cooperation with universities and organizations from Malta, Ghent, Pisa, Montpellier, and Ljubljana.

The EBB objectives are to:

  • promote essayistic writing as a tool for civic engagement and active citizenship

  • strengthen the participants’ critical and creative thinking skills;

  • encourage participants to develop their voice through self-reflective writing based on individual experience;

  • provide participants with ways of thinking about and addressing the effects of climate change; and

  • conduct and disseminate research on the contemporary uses of the essay in democratic societies.
