Riccardo Ginevra is currently Marie Curie Post-Doc Fellow at the Department of Nordic Studies and Linguistics of the University of Copenhagen, carrying out a research project on the comparative analysis and reconstruction of Indo-European conceptualizations and myths about the sky, sun, and sunlight. He received his PhD in Historical-Comparative Linguistics in 2018 from the Università per Stranieri di Siena (Italy) in joint supervision with the University of Cologne (Germany). Before that, he studied Classics (BA 2012; MA 2014) with a focus on Archaic Greek epic poetry and historical linguistics at the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore di Milano (Italy). He has published, given talks, and taught at the university level on the comparative analysis and reconstruction of Indo-European poetic formulas, theonyms, and myths. As a Fellow of the CHS, he has been carrying out a systematical study of the phraseology, thematic structures, and onomastics of the Greek myth of Kore and Demeter as attested in the Homeric Hymn to Demeter (and related texts), with particular focus on their Indo-European background and on the interplay between inherited poetics and other components of different origin within the compositional devices of oral-traditional poetry.
