Dr Jennifer Martyn

I earned my PhD in Sociolinguistics and Second Language Acquisition at University College Dublin in 2016, funded by an Irish Research Council’s Government of Ireland Postgraduate Fellowship.  My PhD research focused on the relationship between gender and language education from sociolinguistic and ethnographic perspectives, with a particular interest in the role of language ideologies and learner identities. My research interests also encompass critical sociolinguistics, linguistic diversity, and social justice. I am the co-editor (with Vera Regan and Chloé Diskin) of the edited volume Language, Identity and Migration: Voices from Transnational Speakers and Communities (Peter Lang, 2016). I currently lecture on the MA in Applied Linguistics at UCD, and am Assistant Lecturer in French in Dublin Institute of Technology.
