His current work pertains the digital dissemination of the Creative Europe project “Shakespeare In and Beyond the Ghetto”, 2016-2018 (, which dealt with Shakespeare’s play The Merchant of Venice. The goal is to provide scholars and nonprofessionals with the access to the multimedia material generated during the project, and by doing so enable a further investigation of the play’s topics, which are as relevant as ever.
