Curriculum Vitae

Anna Solin works at the Department of Modern Languages as professor of English, with a focus on applied linguistics. She has a PhD in Linguistics from Lancaster university, UK, and a docentship in discourse studies from the University of Jyväskylä.

Her main research interests are in genre and discourse studies and normativity in language.

She directs the research project “Language regulation in academia”, which is funded by the Kone Foundation (http://www.helsinki.fi/project/lara/).  She is also involved in a research collaboration between the universities of Helsinki and Stockholm, which compares university language policies and multilingual practices at the two universities.

Anna Solin is Director of the international MA programme in English studies. She teaches applied linguistics methodology and thesis seminars in the programme as well as supervising MA and PhD theses. She also teaches option courses, for example on language policy and EFL teaching materials.
