I teach and research academic writing at the University of Nottingham, UK. This blog is an integral part of my teaching and research. It helps me track conversations, readings and reflections on writing, especially academic writing. Everything I post reflects my current thinking and every comment you make allows that thinking to evolve, hopefully informing your own academic musings along the way.
If you prefer to post your comments in Italian or French, that’s fine. I can read these, which means I can moderate anything you want to say (apologies for excluding other languages: this is simply because I don’t understand any other languages).
My PhD research is jointly supervised by the School of Education and the Department of Philosophy at the University of Nottingham in the UK. This research brings together my previous studies in philosophy and education, and re-iterates my commitment to interdisciplinary perspectives on knowledge.
My previous studies include:
- PGCTEAP (Post Graduate Certificate in Teaching English for Academic Purposes) from the University of Nottingham, UK
- MEd (Applied Linguistics) from the Open University, UK
- MA (Hons) Philosophy and Logic from the University of St Andrews, UK
- European Baccalaureat from the European School, UK
I have 20 years teaching experience in EAP (English for Academic Purposes), and experience in academic translations, editing and proofreading. I’m bilingual English/Italian and fluent in French.
I try to keep https://nottingham.academia.edu/JuliaMolinari up-to-date with publications, conferences and other academic events that I am involved in.
