Stefano “Stebos” Boselli is a theatre and performance scholar, stage director, and dramaturg who enjoys combining theory with practice. At UNLV he is Assistant Professor of Theatre History and Dramaturgy in the Theatre Department and Resident Dramaturg for the Nevada Conservatory Theatre. He also serves as Theatre and Performance Editor for PSA, the journal of the Pirandello Society of America.
In his monograph Actor-Network Dramaturgies: The Argentines of Paris, forthcoming with Palgrave Macmillan, he illustrates how the study of theatre history can be significantly enriched through the lens of actor-network and assemblage theories, focusing on a group of Argentine artists who moved to France and dominated the Parisian scene between the 1980s and 90s. His peer reviewed articles have been published in several academic journals.
He received a PhD in Theatre and Performance from the Graduate Center, City University of New York, a PhD in Italian with specialization in Theatre and Drama from the University of Wisconsin–Madison, an MFA in Stage Directing from the School of Dramatic Art “Paolo Grassi” in Milan, Italy, and a laurea (BA/MA) in English Literature and Translation for the Stage from the Catholic University also in Milan.
Between 2014 and 2022 he taught theatre and literature courses in and around New York, at Baruch, Marymount Manhattan, York, Wagner, Brooklyn, and Hunter College, in addition to Drew and Centenary University. Previously, he taught courses in Italian theatre, First Year Seminars on commedia, and directed a mainstage production of one of Carlo Goldoni’s comedies at Gettysburg College. Before moving to the States, he taught Translation for the Theatre at the University of Cassino in Italy.
