Curriculum

Marta Degani is Associate Professor of English language and linguistics at the University of Verona since 2014. She has researched extensively on the variety of New Zealand English, focusing on phenomena of linguistic and cultural contact between English and Maori. She has also worked on semantic and pragmatic aspects of English modality and published on issues of subjectification and (inter)subjectivity. She currently has two research foci: the analysis of political discourse in the frameworks of cognitive semantics and discourse analysis (honourable mention ESSE Book Awards 2016 for the monograph Framing the Rhetoric of a Leader, 2015) and the study of bilingualism and biculturalism in the context of Aotearoa/New Zealand.
