Camilla Storskog is an Associate Professor of Scandinavian Studies at the University of Milan, Italy. She has focused on interdisciplinary research with special attention to crossovers between literature and the visual arts. Her first book-length study, Literary Impressionisms, focused on identifying and exploring resonances of impressionism in a field — Swedish and Finland-Swedish literature — hitherto overlooked in the critical debate on literary impressionism. She is currently concluding a book dedicated to comic art adaptations of Scandinavian classics. It examines the ways in which works by H.C. Andersen, Ingmar Bergman, Karen Blixen, Karin Boye, Henrik Ibsen, Jon Fosse, and Zacharias Topelius have travelled across media, time, place, culture, and language, with emphasis on the aesthetics, techniques, and narrative machinery of storytelling in the medium of comics.
She has also published numerous articles on travel writing, the historical novel, poetry, and the representation of scientists and technology in 19th and 20th-century Scandinavian literature.
