Guido Furci received his BA and his Master of Modern Philology at the University of Siena, after which he went on to receive his PhD from the School of Comparative Literature of the University Paris 3 – Sorbonne Nouvelle (Paris Sorbonne Cité). He also holds a MAS in Literature and Aesthetics, as well as two graduate degrees in Media Literacy and Jewish Studies.

Before coming to Hopkins (where he was previously a visiting student and Teaching Assistant), he worked for the “Fondation pour la Mémoire de la Shoah” (Paris) and directed the École Suisse Internationale (Paris-Dijon). At the ESI he supervised the Division of French and Italian.

His current research focuses on the notion of indirect witnessing as theorized by Primo Levi, Aharon Appelfeld, and Philip Roth in their private correspondence and in their literary work.

Among his publications are a book he wrote with Marion Duvernois, Figures de l’exil, géographies du double. Notes sur Agota Kristof and Stephen Vizinczey (Giulio Perrone Editore, 2012), and a volume of collected essays he co-edited with Claire Cornillon, Nadja Djuric, Louiza Kadari, and Pierre Leroux: Fin(s) du monde (Pendragon, 2013).
