Ph.D. in Linguistics - 37° ciclo (October 1, 2021 - September 30, 2024)

Doctorate research program
My research project concerns the advantages of the digital paradigm for scholarly editing and synoptic editions. After an assessment of the past and state-of-the-art theories and practices in both non-digital and digital philology, I will use the multi-version German tradition of the so-called Alexanderlied as my case study to lay down an editorial methodology for the digital synoptic representation of textual traditions handed down in multiple recensions. I will prepare a synoptic edition of the three versions of the Alexanderlied following the TEI XML standards. The edition will be visualised with the software EVT 3, which will be customised to implement a module for synoptic editions according to the criteria for text alignment that I will test in my encoding model. The end goals are gaining a better understanding of the complex Alexander corpus and proposing a reusable and extensible paradigm for digital synoptic editions. My supervisor is Prof. Maria Adele Cipolla (Università degli Studi di Verona). My co-supervisor is Prof. Roberto Rosselli Del Turco (Università degli Studi di Torino).

I graduated in Theoretical and Applied Linguistics at the University of Pavia with a thesis on the Gothic synthetic medio-passive. After my MA, I obtained a Postgraduate Certificate in Digital Humanities from University College London. I am a PhD student in Linguistics (L-FIL-LET/15 - GERMANIC PHILOLOGY, cycle 37) at the Universities of Verona and Bolzano. I am currently spending a mobility period abroad as a guest researcher at the Cologne Center for eHumanities (Köln, DE). My research interests include digital philology, old Germanic languages, interface design, data management and modelling.
