Paola Giorgis holds a BA and MA in English and North-American Literature and Studies and a PhD in Anthropology of Education and Intercultural Education. She has also had training in Critical Socio-linguistics and in the rhetorical strategies of persuasion and manipulation in contemporary public debates.

She has published two monographs, several articles, chapters in collective works and has participated to many international conferences. She is co-founder and member of wom.an.ed (women’s studies in anthropology and education), and is affiliated to several international associations of Linguistics and Intercultural Studies.
