The Università degli Studi Internazionali di Roma – UNINT promotes and funds the University’s research activities. For this purpose, UNINT has established the University Research Committee, the University Research Register, and the University Fund for Scientific Research. Decisions on the allocation of the University Fund for Scientific Research are made by the Board of Directors; funding may come from public or private institutions and is valid for one year. The Fund is intended for Research Projects and Research Services.
Funding requests may be submitted to the Rector by tenured Lecturers and Researchers, by fulfilling the dedicated form available on the webpage Research Form Page.
The purpose of this project is to present the results achieved through several research studies, thanks to data analysis tools and corpus-driven processing programmes.
The TVTalk project is envisaged as the continuation of the DubTalk project: its aim is to consolidate the parallel corpus of films and TV series that was collected, and widening the range of genres included. More specifically, the new genres to be added to the corpus include: costume dramas (films and TV series) from literary sources; TV programmes translated via voice-over and simil-synch; Italian films and TV series with English subtitles for export markets.
The aim of the research is to integrate studies on the country-of-origin effect, with reference to the possible influence exerted by the national image, responsible for foreign customers’ perceptions of Italian products in the sectors of food, fashion and furniture.
