University of Zagreb

Further information:

My field of research is Croatian Latin literature (that is, literature
written in Latin by Croatian authors), mainly in 15-16th and 18th
centuries. I am interested not only in les belles lettres, but also in the
genres which are today perceived as non-literary. From 2007 I lead a
research project "Digitizing Croatian Latin authors", dedicated to
creating a digital library / archive / working environment, freely
accessible over the internet, to stimulate research on Croatian Latin
literature (and, hopefully, Neo-Latin and Latin literature in general).
