Personal profile

Research interests

 

I am a member of the Language and Educational Practices (LEP) research cluster within the Department of Education. I have worked in the field of international language education and intercultural communication for 30 years, having been a language teacher, lecturer, translator, researcher and curriculum consultant in several countries of East Asia and Europe. For several years I was involved in British Council and DfID funded curriculum development projects in China and Indonesia, from which I developed a continuing interest in language education and intercultural communication in the Asia Pacific region. In recent years I have also been increasingly interested in research activities in Latin America.

I joined the University of Bath in 2003. I am currently Director of Studies of the MA in English as a Medium of Instruction (MA EMI) and convenor of the EdD unit Language, Communication and Education (ED60279). Other positions I have held include Director of Studies of the MA TESOL (2007-2015), Leader of the Language and Educational Practices Research Cluster (2013-2018), Director of the Postgraduate International Summer School (2003-2005) and Acting Director of Studies of the MA in Education (2011).

My recent research projects and publications have focused on language and identity (including the critique of ‘the East Asian learner’ stereotype); the branding and marketization of English as an International Language; and the role of intercultural communication in the internationalization of education. I use several languages in my personal and professional life, most recently concentrating on Modern Greek.
