Dr Johann Unger

Lecturer & Academic Director

Research Overview

I am currently interested in three main research areas:

  • Online forms of political resistance;
  • Language policy and the politics of language (especially in Scotland);
  • Students' attitudes towards their use of academic language, particularly when they are studying in international contexts.
