Giorgio Busi Rizzi is a BOF post-doctoral researcher at the Department of Literary Studies, with a project currently called Experimental digital comics: forms and functions. He obtained his PhD from the Universities of Leuven and Bologna, focusing on nostalgia in graphic novels.
His current project examines the way digital comics experiment with the possibilities offered by their format. This includes reflecting on the forms that can be adopted in the digital environment once the page format is no longer a constraint, and investigating their specificities for what concerns multimodality, immersion, and interactivity.
Giorgio teaches the Literature in English: Modern Period II course, and is a lecturer for the course on Comics and Graphic Novels.
