I received a PhD in English for Special Purposes (ESP) from the University of Naples Federico II. My research interests lie in the intersections between different methodological approaches, such as Corpus Linguistics, (Critical) Discourse Analysis, and Genre Analysis, among others. My research has mainly focused on media discourse – in particular, on digital media and news discourse. I am currently a Lecturer in English Language and Linguistics at the University of Naples ‘L’Orientale’ and at the University of Naples Federico II.

An Anglophile since early childhood, I completed my degree in English Language & Literature in Amsterdam, before moving to the UK. There, I started out as a secondary school English teacher and I am now a part-time English teacher in a 6th form college (where I teach mostly A level English Language). Since September 2016, I am also a part-time PhD student, researching English teachers’ cognition with regard to ‘Knowledge About Language’ and its relationship to current language ideologies. In my research, I employ Corpus Linguistics methodologies in order to locate language ideologies in general, public, as well as educational discourses. My interest in Linguistics has also led me to become a Linguistics Olympiad problem writer in 2011. I also work as a Principal Examiner for A level English Language and produce A level English teaching resources for As well as being a native speaker of Dutch, I speak fluent English & German and have some proficiency in a few other languages. Perhaps not surprisingly, I am a keen learner of languages and have interests in Corpus Linguistics, Critical Discourse Analysis, Linguistic Typology, Cognitive Linguistics, & Bilingualism/Multilingualism.

MemberAdi S. Bharat

I am a scholar of modern and contemporary French culture, society, and politics. While most of my research is focused on the contemporary period, I have experience teaching courses (or “modules” in UK parlance) on French literature, history, culture, society, and politics in the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries, in addition to Islamic history. My work is interdisciplinary, intersecting with cultural studies, literary studies, queer studies, ethnic studies, and diaspora studies. My primary methodologies are qualitative: discourse analysis, literary analysis, and ethnography. In addition, I occasionally draw on corpus linguistics approaches to aid my discourse analysis research.
