Rose Facchini holds an MA in Italian Literary Studies from the Italian Language School at Middlebury College and an MA in International Relations from Salve Regina University. She is an Assistant Editor and the Italian Translator Editor for the International Poetry Review (University of North Carolina at Greensboro).
Her main research focuses on the intersection between Italian studies and environmental humanities with a focus on climate change. She explores how Italian cities imagine the rapidly changing landscape through both translated and native speculative fiction, and how this correlates in the real world with policy making and sociocultural adjustments.
Facchini is a Bread Loaf alumna and enjoys translating science fiction, weird fiction, fantasy, and horror. Her translations have appeared in West Branch (forthcoming), Intrinsick, and the International Poetry Review. She has published her research in Military Medicine and has received several fellowships and grants, most notably the Kathryn Davis Fellowship for Peace and the Katharine Bakeless Nason Endowment.
Facchini has experience teaching all levels of the Italian language, Italian history through film, and Italian literature.
