Biography

Sadie completed her undergraduate degree at the University of Glasgow, graduating in English Literature and Creative Writing with first class honours. She went on to complete an MPhil in Linguistics, exploring the use of Glaswegian linguistic features on social media. She then did an interdisciplinary PhD in Linguistics and Education, funded by the Lord Kelvin Adam Smith scholarship, focusing on the linguistic and social experiences of young migrants in a Glasgow high school: in particular, it asked to what extent these pupils were acquiring local Glaswegian speech norms, and how this acquisition related to identity and self-perception. After completing her PhD, she became a Research Associate on the Manchester Voices project at Manchester Metropolitan University, before returning to the University of Glasgow’s School of Education as Lecturer in Languages and Intercultural Studies in 2022. 

Research interests

Sadie’s research interests include language and identity; language and social justice; educational linguistics; participatory methods; language and social class; language and migration; multilingualism; language and adolescence; and participatory podcasting. She also specialises in public engagement, and makes the award-winning linguistics podcast Accentricity [www.accentricity-podcast.com], which is aimed at a public, non-specialist audience, and aims to narrow the gap between academic knowledge about language and people’s everyday linguistic experiences. She leads the University of Glasgow Podcasting Collective, and is a member of the Young Academy of Scotland.
