Research Interests

I have a wide range of interests under the broad heading of sociolinguistics, with a particular focus on the interrelationships between media and language and on economic aspects of multilingualism.  
I am currently collaborating with Sari Pietikainen in Jyvaskyla on the Peripheral Multilingualism project, which investigates examines contestation and innovation in multilingual Sámi, Corsican, Irish and Welsh indigenous and minority language contexts (for more details: www.peripheralmultilingualism.fi). I am also currently collaborating with Sarah Beecham and John Noll in LERO, the Irish Software Engineering Centre, on the Venture project, funded by Enterprise Ireland, on a training application designed to boost global collaboration, communication, and productivity across culturally diverse teams.
I am always interested in applications for research supervision in the broad areas of media, marketing and multilingualism, and in TESOL projects in the areas of language ideologies/attitudes, political economy and globalization, and in social media.
If you are interested in submitting a proposal to the Language and Globalization series, which I co-edit with Sue Wright, please do feel free to contact me  (helen.kelly.holmes@ul.ie).
