My 150-page college thesis was a sweeping study of French and Italian film, literature, history, and political culture as they relate to the student uprisings of 1968 and the revolutionary and reformist legacies of the French Revolution. I am very well versed in most aspects of Western European written culture, and my control of three romance languages combines with exhaustively researched course experience in a wide array of humanities and social science offerings. I have a firm grasp of political theory and comparative political practice, and am fully conversant with the nuances of contemporary Italian cultural institutions. I read La Repubblica online and l'espresso whenever I can, and have read numerous works by Leonardo Sciascia, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Sebastiano Vassalli, Pier Vittorio Tondelli, and many others. I also read the NY Times, The Economist, The Atlantic, Harper's, and a wide array of other public works on a regular basis.

I am currently in the process of gaining accreditation to translate from Italian to English: I have passed the written test and am waiting to hear the results of the oral test. I am unexperienced as yet, but am willing to work for trainee-level prices to bolster my reputation. I am an excellent and versatile writer with many interests, and I guarantee that I will not let you down.
