Marilyn Martin-Jones  

University of Birmingham in UK


Marilyn Martin-Jones is Emeritus Professor and  former Director of the MOSAIC Centre for Research on Multilingualism. She has  been involved in research on bilingualism and multilingualism in different  regions of Britain  for thirty years. She has undertaken three broad types of research: (1.)  research on the use of multilingual resources in face-to-face interaction; (2.)  research on multilingual literacy and the uses of texts in bilingual and  multilingual settings; (3.) ethnographic research related to the processes  involved in the translation of language policies into classroom practice.  

  Her research has been primarily sociolinguistic  and ethnographic in nature and has been based in different research sites: in  urban and rural settings, in community contexts as well as in schools, colleges  and classrooms. She has a particular interest in multilingualism and gender and  in the ways in which language and literacy practices contribute to the  construction of identities in local life worlds, in institutional settings and  in trans-local contexts.    She was co-editor (with Alexandra Jaffe) of the   international journal Linguistics and Education, from 2004 – 2007 and she is  also editor of a book series (with Joan Pujolar) Critical Studies in  Multilingualism (Routledge)
