Dr Marta Arnaldi
Extraordinary Junior Research Fellow in Italian
I grew up in Sanremo, in the Ligurian region of Italy, not far from the French border. After studying Medicine and Surgery at the University of Turin (2005-2007), I obtained a BA in Italian Literature from the same university (2010). My graduate education includes an MA in Modern Philology from the University of Pavia (2013), an M.St. in Modern Languages from the University of Oxford (2014), and a DPhil in Medieval and Modern Languages, also from Oxford (2018). Since 2017, I have been a Stipendiary Lecturer in Italian at St Anne’s College, Oxford, and I arrived at Queen’s as a Laming Research Fellow in October 2019. In addition to my academic career, I am a writer and a ballet dancer (London RAD). My first collection of poems, Itaca, has won two international literary prizes.
