Personal profile

Research Focus

The primary focus of my research lies in the field of language policy and language legislation. My thesis is a comparative study which considers the manner in which language conflicts have been negotiated in other jurisdictions.

Research Interests

I am particularly interested in why languages become problematised in divided societies and the intersections between history, language and law.
