Contratulations to Arianna Berardi Wiltshire! or should I say Doctor or Dottoressa! Many of you will know her from such papers as Language and Communication and Language and Culture. Her Phd research looked at the importance and meaning of Italian ancestry to learners of Italian. Her consultants made a wide range of discursive uses for their Italianita or ‘Italian-ness’ in their motivation and self-regulation as language learners. Her write up of her ethnographic observations and interviews with the language learners is a dascinating read. Well done Arianna. Arianna took centre stage at this year’s graduation ceremony to be capped as PhD. Read all about it here …Arianna’s reseach success
