CV for Dr Ettore Marchetti

After my Laurea in Italian Studies (University of L’Aquila, 2002), I completed a Master in Teaching Italian as a Foreign Language at the University of Padova. From 2008 to 2015 I taught Italian Language in American Universities as a Graduate Teaching Assistant, and I obtained a PhD in Italian Studies at the University of Texas at Austin in 2015, with a dissertation on the linguistic features of dialogues in contemporary Italian cinema, with particular focus on the genre of comedy. Before returning to Exeter, where I worked from 2015 to 2017 as an Associate Lecturer, I taught Italian Language and History of the Italian Language at the University College Dublin, and Italian Language at the Language Centre of Verona University in Italy. I have published articles in the field of Italian Linguistics, particularly on the relation between new linguistic tendencies and the language of mass media.
