I am interested in linguistic and cultural dimensions of globalization, transnational and national identity, and the role of media discourse in the (re)production of, and resistance to, hegemony. I am especially interested in the global hegemony of the English language and the ways in which discourses such as linguistic inevitability, (neo)liberal and postmodern populism, liberal universalism, and utilitarian instrumentalism contribute to the reproduction of this global social phenomenon.
