Rafael Lomeu

Doctoral Research Fellow

Rafael's research interests involve family language practices, discourse analysis, southern theories and ethnography. He holds a BA in Social Sciences (Pontifícia Unviersidade Católica de São Paulo – 2010) and an MA in Linguistics (Queen Mary, University of London – 2015), and his interdisciplinary background is reflected in his current research project where he investigates how situated language practices of Brazilian families in Norway intertwine with macro-level social, economic and political processes.
