Prof. Marco Coniglio


Please provide a brief outline of your training and scientific activity.

I took my degree in Linguistics and Literary Studies at Ca’ Foscari University of Venice in 2005 and, as part of a “cotutelle”, I got a PhD in Linguistics at Ca’ Foscari University of Venice and at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin in 2009. After receiving a grant from the Zentrum für Allgemeine Sprachwissenschaft (Berlin, November 2008 – May 2009) and from Ca’ Foscari University of Venice (June 2010 – May 2011), I started working at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin in the Sonderfoschungsbereich 632 “Information structure: The linguistic means for structuring utterances, sentences and texts”. Since 2015, I have been professor of German Linguistics at Georg-August-Universität Göttingen.

Please state your reasons for choosing Venice and the Department for your research and teaching stay.

My teaching and research activities cover different linguistic fields and topics, ranging from theoretical linguistics to empirical linguistics, both a synchronic and diachronic point of view. Thus, they are complementary to those at Ca' Foscari University of Venice and will be profitable for students and faculty in Venice.

 Have you ever had a research collaboration with the teaching staff of Department of
Linguistics and Comparative Cultural Studies in the past?

Yes, since I graduated and took my PhD in Venice, I have collaborated with many professors and researchers at the Department of Comparative Linguistic and Cultural Studies at Ca' Foscari in the last years, such as such as Roland Hinterhölzl, Chiara De Bastiani and Anna Cardinaletti. Furthermore, I was an "external consultant" for the First Settlement Funds project Investigating Modal Particles from a German-Italian perspective (May 2020-December 2022) by Federica Cognola and I was an invited speaker at the conference she organized in Venice (November 15-16, 2021) on this topic
