Dr Tom Bartlett

  • Reader in Applied Linguistics (English Language & Linguistics)

Research interests

I am interested in language as a social phenomenon, from the functional description of structure to linguistic ethnography and critical analysis.  I specialise in Systemic Functional Linguistics (SFL) and Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA), with a particular focus on functional descriptions of Scottish Gaelic at one end of the scale and the Discourses of Sustainability and Community Management at the other.      I am co-editor, with Gerard O’Grady, of the Routledge Handbook of Systemic Functional Linguistics (2017) and have published a monograph on community management and development, Hybrid Voices and Collaborative Change: Contextualising Positive Discourse Analysis (Routledge 2012) and a textbook on discourse analysis, Analysing Power in Language:  A Practical Guide (Routledge 2014).   

Biography

I have taught English in the UK, Europe, North America and Latin America, and have previously held academic posts in the US and the UK.  My most recent academic post before coming to Glasgow in 2019 was Professor of Language and Communication at Cardiff University.

 


Supervision

I am interested in supervising theses on functional grammar, linguistic ethnography and discourse analysis, particular in relation to community participation in decision-making processes and/or discourses of sustainability.

I have supervised six PhDs to completion, on the following topics:

Ellipsis and Context: A Corpus-Based Approach.

Reading Strategies of Chinese Students in Tertiary Education in the UK.

A Functional and Cognitive Investigation of Language Transfer in Italian Learners of English.

Neutrality and Stance in Botswanan newspapers.

Sacred texts and identity construction in the Cardiff Muslim community: sojourners’ narratives and majales.

Contestation of the Concept of ‘Liberalism’ in The Saudi Press.


Teaching

I will be teaching on the MSc modules Applying Linguistics in Social and Professional Life and Systemic Functional linguistics and its Applications.  I will be developing a further MSc course on Discourse Analysis and Critical Theory for the academic year 2020-2021.
