Presentazione del volume

English in Italy: Linguistic, Educational and Professional Challenges explores the influence of the English language on areas of major social and cultural growth in 21st-century Italy. More specifically, the volume investigates the impact of English on general and specialised discourse, the role of English in language mediation practices in professional and educational settings, the educational and cultural implications of the spread of English-medium Instruction (EMI) in Italian universities, and, finally, the contact of English and Italian in 'new' migratory contexts. The need for such an investigation comes from the well-known fact that the linguistic and cultural influence of English represents a complex, challenging and controversial phenomenon in contemporary Italy, Europe and worldwide.

Alessandra Molino is Senior Lecturer of English Linguistics and Translation in the Department of Foreign Languages, Literature and Modern Cultures at the University of Torino.
