Ph.D. in theory and history of literature (A Jungian Interpretation of E. M. Forster's A Passage to India: Indian and Western Visions of the Ego, Soul, Self). Assistant Professor at Juraj Dobrila University of Pula. His scholarly interests include myth and archetypal criticism, relations between literary and non-literary realities, and traditional literary theories and practices, with a particular accent on India. Besides scholarly papers published at home and abroad, to his credit are over twenty books and dozens of other texts translated from English, Italian, German, French, Hindi and Sanskrit, many of which he has provided with a preface and notes. To his credit is The Occidentocentric Fallacy: Turning Literature into a Province (Cambridge, 2018), dealing with problems in establishing world literature as such. He has also written a number of lexicographic units covering Indian literature. As poet, fiction writer and essayist, he has published six books, besides many texts in various magazines and on the radio. He has been awarded for his literary and translation work, both at home and internationally, and has himself been translated into several languages.
