Curriculum Vitae

Carlotta Paltrinieri received her doctoral degree in Italian Studies at Indiana University Bloomington in August 2018, with a specialization in early modern literature and art history. Her doctoral dissertation examined the changing status of visual arts between 15th and 16th century, through the linguistic and stylistic analysis of the contemporary artistic literature.  Since September 2018 she has been Senior Research Fellow and Assistant Director of the Medici Archive Project, based in Florence. In the past two years she has been working on the social and intellectual exchanges within the Accademia del Disegno of Florence, joining the research group "Tuscan Academies of the 17th century", coordinated by the Centro Internazionale di Studi sul Seicento of the Università per Stranieri di Siena. 
Between September 2019 and August 2020 she was the recipient of a post-doctoral fellowship within the Irish Research Council-funded project "Euronews", co-directed by the University College Cork and the Medici Archive Project, for which she explored works on the development of the language of early modern avvisi as a lingua franca. She will continue this research project in 2021 as Visiting Fellow at the Institute of Modern Languages Research, University of London’s School of Advanced Study.
