About Author

My main research interests revolve around social inequalities and language use, and the ways that these interact with and affect each other. I work within a field of research known as Critical Discourse Studies. We argue that because language use contributes to the production and the reproduction of social life, logically, it must play a part in producing and reproducing social inequalities. Critical Discourse Analysts aim to show how this occurs, thereby linking social and linguistic analysis. I am the Chief Editor of the international peer review journal, Critical Discourse Studies
