Research Interests for Dominika M Baran

Research Interests: Language and identity, language ideologies, multilingual communities, language in education, language and migration

My work to date has focused on the relationship between language ideologies and the construction of social identities through linguistic practice. My PhD dissertation examined the intersection of language, ethnicity, gender and social class in the context of an educational institution in Taiwan. Most recently, I have become interested in the role of language in the shaping of immigrant identities in the United States and other English-dominant countries.
