Professor Fabio Cleto teaches History of the Present and Cultural History at the University of Bergamo (Italy). An authority on the theory and practice of camp, on which he published three books (PopCamp, 2 volls., Milan: Marcos y Marcos, 2008; Per una definizione del discorso camp, Genoa: ECIG, 2006; ed., Camp: Queer Aesthetics and the Performing Subject, Edinburgh: Edinburgh UP; Ann Arbor: University of Michigan Press, 1999), his research interests include cultural studies, queer issues, gender and the politics of representation, literary history and fin de siècle to postmodernist fiction. Besides consulting for prominent encyclopedias (including Umberto Eco?s History of Ugliness, 2007, translated in over twenty languages), and editing two journals of literary theory, he has also published books on nineteenth-century literary dissidence (Percorsi del dissenso nel secondo Ottocento britannico, Genoa: ECIG, 2001), on Ronald Firbank (Opale violetto verdeoro. Uno studio su Ronald Firbank, Genova: ECIG, 2012), on the mid-1960s transatlantic cultural economy (Intrigo internazionale, Milano: il Saggiatore, 2013), and on American queer pulp fiction (ed., Victor J. Banis, writing as Don Holliday, That Man from C.A.M.P.: Rebel Without a Pause, New York: Haworth Press, 2004, 2nd edition, The Man from C.A.M.P.: Three Classics from the Golden Age of Paperbacks, Albion: MLR Press, 2008; ed., Spine Intact, Some Creases: Remembrances of a Paperback Writer, Genoa: ECIG, 2004, 2nd edition, Rockville, MD: Borgo Press, 2007).
