Short Bio

Antonella Luporini obtained her PhD in English Linguistics from the University of Pisa in 2013. Her past teaching experience includes lectures and courses, at both undergraduate and graduate level, held at the University of Bologna and the University of Pisa. She is a member of the LILEC Department's Center for Linguistic-Cultural Studies (CeSLiC), where she is currently carrying out a research project on software-assisted literary stylistics and its pedagogic applications ("SSS, the corpus, and the consumer"). She is also working on the impact of computer-mediated communication (especially the Moodle e-forum) on L2 English teaching/ learning (CeSLiC project "CO-METS"). Her research interests include corpus-assisted studies on metaphor and media discourse, with particular reference to finance/economics: this is the topic of her PhD dissertation (honourable mention at the 2014 AIA-Carocci PhD Prize) and of her newly published book "Metaphor in Times of Economic Change" (Aracne, 2019).
