Other Work Experiences focused on Language and Research
"Language practices: reshaping individual and collective identities"
Ethnographic Research, 2009-2010
Conducted qualitative research study among native and nonnative Italian middle school students aimed at investigating what happens when a foreign language separates the speaker from her or his own cultural belonging and identity, and how this separation impacts the perception and representation of the self and others. The hypothesis of the research was that the experience of a foreign language can reframe individual and collective identities from a personal and relational point of view, and that this can impact on and remodel the different roles and footings that one can assume, perform, or access, in the context of the classroom. Learned that adolescent students appropriate different languages bottom-up, employing a variety of transcultural youth products (hip hop music, online blogs, games and communications, TV series, participation in the social networks, and the Internet), and widely practice cross-linguistic interactions to create new affiliations.

"Talking About Me, Talking About You: An Italian Play Written by Foreign Women"
Ethnographic Research, 2007-2008
Qualitative research conducted among students of an Italian as second language course for foreign women. The aim of the study was to investigate the impact of better Italian language proficiency on the social lives of these women. The interviews showed that what was perceived as the most relevant enhancement in their lives was the possibility to widen their sense of belonging: the Italian language was the new code to communicate with other foreign women and to understand that they were sharing the same story. Their mutual perception and representation changes through this experience, and these changes created new affiliations as well as new perspectives of themselves and others. These results affirm that the most fundamental characteristic of language is its connection with individual and collective identities. Languages are primary components of identity belongings, as well as synergetic elements of affiliations and representations that shape and are shaped by new connections.
