Eleonora Cattafi (born 1994, Italy) studied at University of Pisa, where she received her BA (2016) and MA degree (2018) cum laude in Classics, and at Scuola Normale Superiore, where she was awarded a five-year scholarship from the Puteano College Foundation (2013-2018). She has been doing linguistic research at Ghent University as MA thesis exchange student (February-May 2018) and scientific researcher (June-September 2018), taking part in the ERC project EVALISA (The Evolution of Case, Alignment and Argument Structure in Indo-European). Afterwards, she has completed a research internship (February-June 2019) on the ERC project EVWRIT (Everyday Writing in Graeco-Roman and Late Antique Egypt). Eleonora’s interests include Ancient Greek linguistics, morphosyntax-semantics interface, non-canonical argument marking, sociolinguistic approaches to historical languages, relativization and subordinate clauses. Her PhD thesis focus on relative clauses in Greek documentary papyri (I-VIII AD), exploring in particular the link between the linguistic variation and the sociolinguistic distribution of relative clauses through the notion of complexity.
