Research interests

Dr Linda Walz conducts research on the linguistic construction of identity and on aspects of social interaction, drawing on discourse analysis and membership categorisation analysis. She is particularly interested in exploring experiences and situations of transition in face-to-face and online settings. Her doctoral thesis analysed the linguistic construction of identity in ‘expatriate blogs’ through the lens of tactics of intersubjectivity and membership categories.

Current research projects include: Identifying good practices through the investigation of authentic recordings of viva voce examinations; The Language of misogyny in morning TV shows; Accountability of public conduct on social media; Accusations of ‘mansplaining’ in social interaction.
