    Alessia's doctoral dissertation project is on "Minority Languages: Vitality and Practices in Language Contact Situations in the Aosta Valley, Italy"

    The travel grant will fund large-scale survey research and participant observation of the vitality of an endangered language spoken in the Aosta Valley, an autonomous region of Italy where two official languages, Italian and French, are used alongside local Franco-Provençal varieties in everyday interactions, both in public and private domains. The aim of the dissertation is to examine how these local languages survive in everyday use despite competition from two major standard European languages.
