Beatrice Arduini is Associate Professor of Italian Studies at the University of Washington. She completed her undergraduate work and earned a doctorate at the University of Milan, and received her Ph.D. from Indiana University. Her work centers Medieval Italian literature and Dante Studies, particularly manuscript culture and early book history. Her projects include the analysis of Giovanni Boccaccio's authorship of the Decameron and his role as copyist and editor of Dante's works, in particular the Rime. Dr. Arduini is interested in the development of the poem collection genre (canzonieri), and works composed of verse and prose (prosimetra). Her work brings attention to how the material transformation of medieval texts entails changes in the meaning and cultural significance of those texts through the different stages of the publication process.
