2000 – 2007 During my lectureship at the University of Turin, I held lecture and seminar courses in Germanic Philology for both the BA and the MA programmes.

Lecture courses for the BA programmes consisted of 30 lectures (60 hrs) and provided an introduction to Germanic Philology, dealing with the fundamental aspects of the language, culture, and society of the Germanic peoples in the Late Antiquity and early Middle Ages. The courses always included the reading, translation, and philological analysis of basic texts in an Old Germanic language.

Lecture courses for the MA programmes consisted of 30 lectures (60 hrs) and focused on one Germanic language and related literature (generally either Gothic or Old English). The courses provided a general historical background, an outline of the literary production in the given language, and an introduction to the phonology, the inflectional and derivational morphology, the lexicon, and syntax of the language in question. Literary texts were read, translated and analysed in detail from a philological perspective, in order to help students develop awareness and comprehension of how the selected Germanic language works in context. Fundamental issues concerning the role of translation in the development of Germanic literary cultures were also addressed.

The seminars were offered to both BA and MA students and concerned questions of textual criticism applied to the literary traditions in Old Germanic languages. The seminars aimed to offer an introduction to palaeography and codicology as well as to stimulate in students a sense of the main problems concerning the production and transmission of texts within a manuscript culture.

May – June 2006 I taught a 10-class course, ‘Introduction to the German Language’, to the students of the MA programme in ‘Language, Culture and Society of the Linguistic Minorities of Piedmont’ of the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Turin.

2007 – Since October 2007, I have been teaching lecture courses in Germanic Philology for both the BA and MA programmes at the University of Udine.

The lecture courses for the BA programme consist of 20 lectures (40 hrs) and are divided into two modules. The first one offers an introduction to the language, culture, and society of the Germanic peoples in the Late Antiquity and early Middle Ages. An outline is presented of the fundamentals of Germanic Philology, with a focus on the distinctive features of Old Germanic languages. The second module focuses on one or more texts from the early Germanic Middle Ages, of which selected passages are read, translated, and analysed during class.The lecture courses for the MA programme consist of 20 lectures (40 hrs) and focus on one text or a selected group of texts from one Germanic literature (generally either Old English or Old Norse). The first part of the course aims to provide a historical background and an outline of the language and literature in question. Secondly, selected passages of the given text(s) are read, translated, and analysed.

2009-10 In the summer semester, I taught a lecture course on German Culture and Civilisation. The course consisted of 20 lectures (40 hrs) and aimed at introducing first-year students to the key aspects of German culture and civilisation, with a focus on the history of the German language as the most distinctive and cogent feature of the German cultural identity.

2010-11 In the summer semester, I taught a seminar course on academic writing to final-year students of the Faculty of Modern Languages. The course consisted of 10 seminars (20 hrs) and was intended to support students in their dissertation writing, by outlining the key issues of bibliographical research and offering practical guidelines to academic writing.
