Research title: 'Bilingual Realities - An Account of Bilingual Latin American Writers in the United States'

Research Summary

My research explores bilingualism in the works of contemporary Latino/a writers in the United States and I am particularly interested in the ways in which writers negotiate their linguistic identity through their writing.

Within my PhD, I investigate forms of hybrid writing, code-switching and literary multilingualism, the use of Spanglish, as well as the motivations of Latino/a writers and their experiences of languages. I am also interested in exploring the role of the reader in bilingual literature.
