Andreas Nuottaniemi

I am a doctoral student in applied linguistics with an emphasis on teaching and learning Swedish as a second language. I also teach courses in Swedish as a second language for undergraduate students.

Works at

Doctoral student at Department of Language Studies Units: Swedish and Scandinavian Studies, Language Teaching and Learning, and Educational Work
A, Humanisthuset, korridor HA1 Umeå universitet, 901 87 Umeå

In my research I focus on critical aspects of multilingualism and education. Despite ambitions to visualize other languages than Swedish and promote multilingualism, Swedish public spaces are usually characterized by a strong monolingual norm. In my thesis I explore how newly arrived migrant students’ linguistic repertoires are reflected and reproduced in the linguistic landscape, and how teachers and students can create pedagogical practices that allow multilingual students to appropriate diverse and lived spaces.

I teach about societal aspects of multilingualism and intercultural communication in undergraduate courses in Swedish as a second language.
