Nadia Ellis

Born and raised in Italy, Nadia made her Alya in 2008 after a period of six years spent in Paris, where she completed her studies in French and English Literatures at the Sorbonne-Paris IV University. Nadia has been working on her Ph.D. thesis, concerning the rhetorical uses of the formula "Delegitimization of Israel" in political speeches, under the direction of Prof. Ruth Amossy since 2011. Following Alice Krieg-Planque's definition of "formula", in her thesis Nadia aims at analyzing the rhetorical and discursive strategies of both Israeli and foreign politicians and the way they make use of the blurred and polemical aspects of the expression "Delegitimization of Israel" in their official speeches.
