Interview with João Costa, researcher on educational linguistics and visiting professor at the Department of Linguistics and Comparative Cultural Studies.
Koen Straperlbroek, professor of history and political theory at Rotterdam, chose the Department of Linguistics and Comparative Cultural Studies to research and teach Italian history.
It is a Ca' Foscari University of Venice spin-off that was created to enhance the skills of the Department in the field of linguistic and sensory accessibility.
Our department has a strong interdisciplinary vocation. Our high-level research revolves around twenty-two languages and literatures (Albanian, Anglo-American English, Basque, Brazilian Portuguese, Bulgarian, Catalan, Czech, French, British English, Hispanic-American Spanish, LIS/Italian Sign Language, Tactile LIS, Modern Greek, Polish, European Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Serbo-Croatian, Slovene, Peninsular Spanish, Swedish and German). It also involves literary theory and comparative literature, language teaching, linguistics, politics and history.
Our research activities and scientific projects adopt a double — local and international — perspective and mainly involve three areas: literary and cultural studies; linguistic, philological and language teaching studies; and political-international studies.
The Department is internationally renowned for the importance of its research, and it has been recognised as a Department of Excellence by the Italian Ministry of University and Research.
