Frank van Splunder

University of Antwerp

I have a particular interest in relations between languages and how they are used to construct identities of people and nations. The focus of my research is English as the language of globalization and its use in higher education in non-English-speaking countries. I hold a PhD in Applied Linguistics from Lancaster University, in which I combined my interest in language and politics. Currently, I teach academic writing in a multilingual context at the University of Antwerp.
