Irena Stanic Rasin

Irena Stanic Rasin is an author, translator, and language instructor. Her first book for (pre)adolescents, co-authored with psychologist Latinka Basara, was published in Croatia in 2014. The book has received a recommendation from the Croatian Ministry of Science and Education “for use by students, parents, and teachers as a handbook for growing up, in addressing themes dealing with issues of children and youth in their formative years.” An English translation titled What if That Happened to You: A Handbook for Growing Up is expected in early 2019. Her second book, Threshold, a co-authored English translation of Italian writer Gianna Manzini’s last work Sulla soglia (with Laura E. Ruberto) was published by Italica Press in 2016. Stanic Rasin’s new book for children, When Hen Was on Her Way to Market: A Folktale-Inspired Story of Manners and Nursery Rhyme, inspired by a Croatian nursery rhyme, was published in May 2018. Stanic Rasin holds master’s degrees in English and Italian language and literature and is currently working on her Ph.D. in Croatian language studies in the intercultural context.
