|ERLA key words; language and schooling, language and education, language and methodology, language and culture, language and society, language and personality, language teaching, language learning, language acquisition, attitudes to language, language policy|
|ERLA key problems: All four main areas of the identified ERLA directions are related to “problems” I am interested in investigating. My main contribution to ERLA has, so far, been theinvestigation of Norwegian Nynorsk as an alternative written language in school and society|
I have been a member of the ERL Network since the first ERL conference in 2016 and I eventually also joined the ERL Association when it became clear that ERL/ERLA was my natural “research family”.I am often referred to as one of the “ERL veterans”. My role is, first of all, as an attendee and contributor at the ERL conferences and by publishing in the ERL Journal, and I also try to contribute with perspectives or advice when this is possible.
My main goal is to contribute to a well-functioning network of researchers and practitionersby being active myself. I would like to learn from other ERLA members, but also inspire other researchers by presenting new perspectives.
I would very much like to be a part of joint ERLA projects, preferably with focus on language teaching/learning with perspectives on motivation, emotions, identity, language policy and/or parallel languages (cf. Nynorsk and Bokmål in Norway)..
