Before moving to New York City for my doctoral studies,I was a high school teacher of Philosophy and History in Milano, Italy. I hold a B.A. in Philosophy and an Ed. M. in Philosophy, History, and Pedagogy from the Universita' Cattolica di Milano, and I was a 2008-09 Maclean Fellow of the International Federation of University Women. I served as preceptor of Literature Humanities at Columbia University, as lecturer in the Philosophy and Education Program at Teachers College, and as a visiting assistant Professor at St. Lawrence University, NY. I received my Ph.D. in 2012 from Teachers College, Columbia University. My dissertation, titled The Philosophically Educated Teacher as Traveler, considers metaphors of travel and travelers as they illuminate what it is to teach and be a teacher. I examine ancient Greek conceptions of inquiry as travel, Stoic objections to them, and Renaissance new understanding of the relation between teaching, learning and traveling. In the development of my research, I want to continue exploring such relation and see how it can help me frame and understand the experience of migrants in multicultural societies.
