Stefano Morello is a doctoral candidate in English at the Graduate Center — City University of New York. He holds an M.A. in American Literature from the University of Naples “L’Orientale” and an M.A. in American Studies from the University of Torino.
Among other projects, he is currently committed to exploring the heterotopic space of the East Bay punk scene, its modes of resistance and (dis-)association, and the odd clashes between its politics and aesthetics.
Stefano serves as co-chair of the Graduate Forum of the Italian Association for American Studies (AISNA) and is a founding editor of its journal, JAm It! (Journal of American Studies in Italy). He is also co-curating an exhibition – based on his yet unpublished M.A. dissertation – on a neighborhood on the Lower East Side subject to a process of slum-making during the Progressive Era.

He wishes he spent more time writing poetry and hanging out at the Poetry Project.
