Silvia Stoyanova

Silvia Stoyanova is a literary scholar specializing in modern Italian literature, in particular the works of Giacomo Leopardi. She has conducted research and taught in the USA (Columbia University, Princeton University), Germany (Uni Trier), and Italy (University of Macerata). At Princeton, she initiated the creation of a Digital Research Platform for the Zibaldone, Leopardi’s large collection of research fragments.

At the ACDH, Silvia is working within the exploration space to expand the research framework of the Zibaldone Platform into a networked, multi-modal, participatory knowledge environment. She will explore how semantic web technologies and knowledge visualization methods could help with the challenges of discourse organization in the scholarly fragment genre, and, conversely, how the design of a digital platform for the study of research notes and their epistemic practices could augment interpretation processes in humanities scholarship.
