Attività di Ricerca

My research interests span a range of topics, namely English Language (ESP, EAP, grammar and syntax) and Linguistics, contemporary British and North American Literature, Digital literature and culture, and Translation Studies. In particular I work on how the New Technologies and Media interact with narratives both in digital and in book form (“E-pistolary Novels in the 21st-century We-Culture: recreating a genre”). I have investigated short narratives (Samuel Beckett), novels and e-novels (Matt Beaumont’s), plays (Harold Pinter and Samuel Beckett), manuscripts (Pinter and Beckett), online corpora (“Online edutainment videos: expert discourse and knowledge dissemination recontextualised in TED talks”) applying various approaches and methodologies – i.e. Textual Analysis, Stylistics, Literary Criticism, Translation Studies Theory, Corpus Analysis and Pragmatics.

Intermediality and remediation are production processes which I discussed focusing on the reciprocal interplay of words and images (in Douglas Coupland’s Generation X), comparing and contrasting traditional epistolarity to e-novels and studying we-narratives. My ten-years academic teaching experience in English as L2, English>Italian translation, and ESP has led me to experiment a variety of teaching and learning approaches and methodologies (e-learning, blended learning, flipped classes, CLIL). In the last three years, I have been involved into three main interdisciplinary research groups: the first, ARGEC (Atelier de recherche GĂ©nois sur les Ă©critures contemporaines) is devoted to contemporary writing and more specifically to inter-, trans- and multimedial narratives (“The new technologies and the novel: re-coding narrative in book form” forthcoming in Recherches sĂ©miotiques/Semiotic Inquiry); the second revolved around literature and the city – I contributed with a paper on Douglas Coupland’s speculative fiction issued in 2017 in the online journal Publif@rum (28) under the title: “Mappe Ę˝aperteĘĽ nella narrativa speculativa di Douglas Coupland: dal centro al margine, dal dove al come, dall’io al noi” (“Open maps in Coupland’s speculative narratives: from the centre to the margins, from the where to thw how, from I to we”). In January 2018, I joined an interlinguistic research group working on Metaphors as a conceptual and structural typology.

In 2020, my first academic book was published, i.e. TRADUZIONE E INTERMEDIALITĂ€ NELLA PROSA BREVE DI SAMUEL BECKETT. IMAGINATION MORTE IMAGINEZ E ASSEZ
