Silvia Vari (Italy)

Silvia Vari is a Ph.D. student in Italian Studies at the University of Warwick, where she is trying to unravel the role that the aesthetic and formal affordances of graphic narratives may embody and convey the transitional experiences of migrant subjects. Juggling between academia and the protean world of comics, an objective of her work as academic lies in the importance of creating (and maintaining) a stimulating dialogue between these two worlds.
