Angela Reyes, English
Angela Reyes (Ph.D. University of Pennsylvania, 2003) is Associate Professor of Linguistics in the Department of English. She teaches courses in the structure and history of English, language and ethnicity, and sociolinguistics. Her primary research areas are in linguistic anthropology, discourse analysis, and Asian American studies. Her current work is interested in the ways in which links between dialects and ethnic groups become established, disrupted, and appropriated in discursive interaction. She has conducted two main ethnographic and discourse analytic studies: a four-year study of Southeast Asian American teenagers in an after-school videomaking project at an Asian American community arts organization in Philadelphia; and a one-year study of Korean American fifth graders in an Asian American cram school in New York City. Her publications include Beyond Yellow English: Toward a Linguistic Anthropology of Asian Pacific America (Oxford University Press, 2009); Language, Identity, and Stereotype among Southeast Asian American Youth: The Other Asian (Lawrence Erlbaum, 2007); and numerous articles in journals, such as the Journal of Sociolinguistics, Pragmatics, and Discourse Studies.
