    Research Statement

    Anik Nandi is Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the AHRC funded project, ‘Foreign, indigenous and community languages in the devolved regions of the UK: policy and practice for growth’ under the Leadership Fellowship led by Professor Janice Carruthers. In this project, Anik is researching language policy and practice in relation to community languages in Northern Ireland and Scotland.


    Anik holds a PhD in Sociolinguistics (‘Language Policies on the Ground: Parental Language Management in Urban Galician Homes’) which he completed at Herriot-Watt University (Edinburgh) in 2016. His thesis provided new insights into the understudied field of family language policy and the interrelationship between top-down and bottom-up language policy in contemporary Galicia. Before joining Queen’s, he was directly involved in language planning with regard to the Galician language and acted in an advisory capacity to the General Directorate of Language Policy in Galicia, Spain. He is also an external collaborator at the Sociolinguistic Seminar of the Royal Academy of the Galician Language (Spain), Institute of Galician Language (University of Santiago de Compostela, Spain) and at the research centre attached to the UNESCO Chair on World Language Heritage at the University of the Basque Country (Spain).
