Rosa Lorés Sanz


I am a full professor in the Department of English and German Studies at the Faculty of Arts, Universidad de Zaragoza (Spain). My research has mainly focused on the exploration of discursive and lexicogrammatical features in written academic genres from the standpoint of intercultural rhetoric and the use of English as a Lingua Franca, as well as on pragmatic approaches to the study of translation. My present research interests revolve around the study of digital discourse and digital practices within academic communities. I have published my research in various international journals such as English for Specific Purposes, Text and Talk, Languages in Contrast, Corpora and Journal of English as a Lingua Franca, among others. I have also co-edited four books on academic discourse and pragmatics applied to translation. I am a member of the research group CIRES (Intercultural communication and societal challenges), financed by the Government of Aragon and the EU. I am the principal investigator of the national project “Visibility and dissemination of scientific research: A linguistic, rhetorical and pragmatic study of digital genres in English as an international language” (InterGedi).
