Dr Eva Codó, Principal Investigator, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (Dept of English and German Studies)
I hold a BA in Translation and Interpreting (English and German) and a BA in English Studies from Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB). I did part of my postgraduate studies in the UK, where I was awarded an MA in Language Studies (Bilingualism option) by Lancaster University. I completed my PhD at UAB. Currently, I am Senior Lecturer of English and Linguistics at UAB, where I have a shared appointment at the Faculty of Arts and Humanities and the Faculty of Education. I have previously lectured at the University of the West of England (Bristol, UK) and the Universitat Internacional de Catalunya (Barcelona). I have also been a visiting researcher at the University of Toronto (Canada), 2010/11.
Since its foundation in 2000, I have been a member of CIEN, a long-established UAB-based group undertaking sociolinguistic research in the area of multilingualism. Since 2005, I have also been a team member/collaborator of another experienced UAB team, i.e. GREIP, based at the Faculty of Education and dealing with the analysis of multilingual language practice in educational contexts in Catalonia.
My areas of expertise cover the fields of ethnographic sociolinguistics, institutional communication and multilingualism. My most recent research topics include ideologies of English as a global language in Catalonia/Spain; language, transnational mobility, cosmopolitanism and lifestyle; institutional ethnographies of non-profit organisations; and multilingualism and social structuration.
