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 and Director of the MA in Advanced English Studies. 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) and the Université de Lausanne (Switzerland).

Since its creation 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 sociolinguistics, social studies of multilingualism, language policy, language and migration, and institutional talk. I have been co-researcher in over 9 research projects, both national and international (1 European, 1 Canadian), and Principal Investigator of the coordinated research project MUEDGE, funded by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation, where I headed. the sub-project APINGLO-Cat (FFI2014-54179-C2-1-P). I have published over 30 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters, as well as the monograph Language and Immigration Control, published by De Gruyter (2008). My latest publications can be found in the Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development (2020, 2019), Language and Intercultural Communication (2018), the International Journal of the Sociology of Language, and Language Policy (2018, with A. Patiño-Santos), among others. I am currently co-Chair of the Iberian Association for the Study of Discourse and Society (EDiSo).
