Research Summary

Drawing on critical sociolinguistics ethnography, Rommy’s research project seeks to examine the role of work, education, affect and language in the (re)configuration of female subjectivities and expectations towards specific temporal and spatial horizons. By working with a group of precarised, middle class Chilean female English language teachers (including herself) in higher education, she looks at how particular ways of speaking are linked to long-standing ideas of how women are supposed to communicate and which are a reflection of women’ lower social positioning with regards to men. These links, she argues, contribute to reproducing ideologies which help maintain women in subaltern positions and subjected to different forms of violence. 

Teaching Summary

Rommy possesses extensive experience in teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, both in Chile and the UK, in particular as a teacher educator and thesis supervisor. Her teaching experience has focused on Research Methodologies, Ethnography, Academic English, Phonetics and Phonology.
