November 12, 2015 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Luisa Martín Rojo
Luisa Martín Rojo is Professor in Linguistics at the Universidad Autónoma (Madrid, Spain), and Member of the International Pragmatic Association Consultation Board (2006-2011; re-elected for the period 2012-2017). Through her research trajectory, she has conducted research in the fields of discourse analysis, sociolinguistics and communication, mainly focused on immigration and racism. Since 2000, she has focused on studying the management of cultural and linguistic diversity in Madrid schools, applying a sociolinguistic and ethnographic perspective and analysing how inequality is constructed, naturalized and legitimized through discourse. Her publications in this field are numerous; the most significant could be the 2010 book, Constructing inequality in multilingual classrooms. Currently she is exploring the interplay between urban spaces and linguistic practices in new global protest movements (Occupy: The spatial dynamics of discourse in global protest movements, 2014). She is also a member of the editorial boards of the journals Discourse & Society, Journal of Language and Politics, Spanish in Context, Critical Discourse Studies, and Journal of Multicultural Discourses, and she chairs the Iberian Association of Discourse in Society (EDiSO).
