Stefano Adamo is an Associate Professor of Italian Culture and former chair of the Italian studies program at the University of Banja Luka in Bosnia and Herzegovina. His academic interests lie at the intersection between culture and economics, which he addresses by studying how economic ideas are construed and disseminated in cultural productions such as films and literary works.
His research on various historical periods such as early English Mercantilism and modern Italy has been supported by the Mont Pelerin Society (2010), the Institute for Humane Studies (2012), the International Centre for Economic Research (ICER, 2010 and 2013) and IREF (2020). He has published in peer-reviewed journals of intellectual history, the history of economic thought, and literary studies alike and has edited two volumes on literature and economics, from a comparative and an Italian perspective respectively. He is presently working on a book on the response of Italian writers to the 2008 global financial crisis.
