Giannakopoulou, Dr Liana

Liana Giannakopoulou's research so far has culminated in two books: The Power of Pygmalion. Ancient Greek Sculpture in Modern Greek Poetry (Peter Lang 2007), which explores how poets shape their artistic identity in relation to Ancient Greek sculpture, and The Parthenon in Poetry. An Anthology (in Greek, published by the Hellenic Historical and Literary Archive in 2009), in which she has conducted extensive research on the presence of this monument in poetry from antiquity to today.

Ledgeway, Prof Adam

Adam Ledgeway is Professor of Italian and Romance Linguistics and his research interests include the comparative history and morphosyntax of the Romance languages, Italian dialectology, Latin, Italo-Greek, syntactic theory, and linguistic change. His research is channelled towards bringing together traditional Romance philological scholarship with the insights of recent generative syntactic theory.

 

Schifano, Dr Norma

Norma Schifano works on historical and synchronic Romance and Greek comparative morphosyntax, with a special focus on microvariation and language contact. She has recently completed her PhD dissertation (‘Verb-movement: a pan-Romance investigation’) and is currently working as Research Associate for the Leverhulme-funded project entitled ‘Fading voices in Southern Italy: investigating language contact in Magna Graecia’ with Prof. Adam Ledgeway (Principal Applicant) and Dr Giuseppina Silvestri (Research Associate).

 

Silvestri, Dr Giuseppina

Giuseppina Silvestri’s research interests include comparative Indo-European and Romance Linguistics -especially Italian and non-standard Italian varieties- as well as Greek dialectology, and the phonology-syntax interface, and linguistic theory. She is currently research associate on a 3-year Leverhulme-funded Project, 'Fading voices in southern Italy: investigating language contact in Magna Graecia'.
