Welcome to the home page of Paul Ueda, a Ph.D. Student at The Ohio State University.

Paul is currently a PhD Student within the Department of East Asian Languages and Literatures. He works under the supervision of Marjorie K.M. Chan studying topics related to Chinese linguistics. Currently, Paul’s research focuses on the sociolinguistics of orthography, examining how standardization efforts and variation within written Taiwanese (Southern Min) intersect and are employed to present an individual’s own social identity. Apart from orthography, Paul also has an interest in language standardization, tone-melody correspondence, and gendered performance of Taiwanese.

Apart from his scholarly work in Chinese linguistics and Mandarin language instruction, Paul also works as a Graduate Research Associate in the Office of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice (ODEIJ) within the College of Arts and Sciences here at OSU. In this position, Paul works with the Associate Dean for Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice Dr. Korie Little Edwards in support of the various initiatives within the college.

Included in this website is an updated copy of his Curriculum Vitae, list of publications and presentations, as well as other information.
