    About Maddalena

    Maddalena started her Sanskrit studies in 2008, during her BA in Classics at Milan University. She continued studying Sanskrit language and literature throughout her MA in Classics (Milan University) and her MA in Languages and Cultures of South Asia (SOAS).

    She began teaching Sanskrit in 2014 at SOAS (University of London), while working on her doctorate degree. For two academic years (2014-15 and 2015-16), it was her task – and pleasure – to introduce BA and MA students to the intricacies of Sanskrit grammar. In 2017, Maddalena moved on to adult teaching: she is now convening courses of Sanskrit language at the SOAS Language Centre, as well as of Classical Greek at City Lit (London).

    In June 2018, Maddalena successfully defended her PhD thesis, titled “The Erotic Untranslatable: The Modern Reception of Sanskrit Love Poetry in The West and in India”.
