I am presently participating in the 2021 American Association for Applied Linguistics virtual conference. With Jackie Ridley (Kent State), I have a paper, ‘Ideologies at the intersection of language learning, science learning, and play’. Our paper is part of the colloquium Jackie organized on Language Learning and Play in Preschool Settings, along with papers by Amy Kyratzis (UCSB), Katie Bernstein and Ryleigh Hait (ASU). It is amazing to be hanging out with so many applied linguists in one “place”, hearing about the work they are engaged in now.

This past weekend I gave an invited talk as part of a panel ‘Multilingual Communities in Ethnographic Perspectives’. This panel was part of a series of Literacy Talks organized by the New Literacy Studies Forum/Kajian Literasi Baru. Also presenting was my former advisee Dr. Artanti Sari, who gave a wonderful presentation grounded in her dissertation research with Indonesian-Muslim families who migrated to the US and used online digital telecommunication technology to socialize their children into languages, literacy, and religion.
