Dr Gabriela Meier
Lecturer in Language Education

Profile

My research interest is in bilingual and multilingual education and how plurilingual repertoires that learners bring to school, or develop in schools, can affect social cohesion/social capital and/or teachers’ and learners’ identities. Recent publications include the co-authored book “The Multilingual Turn in Languages Education” (2014), and I’m the leader of the following MED modules: “bilingual and multilingual approaches to language teaching and learning” and “principles of language learning”.

I supervise Masters and Doctoral projects related to my research interests. Thus, I’m always happy to hear from prospective students who wish to undertake PhD research related to bilingual/multilingual education, plurilingualism and related topics.
