MARGUERITE Morlan

marguerite_morlan@berkeley.edu

I am a Ph.D. student in Romance Linguistics at the University of California, Berkeley. My research explores language attitudes and identity in the Catalan Countries. I employ mixed-methods approaches in both sociolinguistics and linguistic landscape studies, with a particular focus on how language choice is used to index different aspects of identity among multilingual individuals. I also examine the relationship between linguistic identity and other cognitive functions.

I am also one of the organizers for the Sociolinguistics Lab at Berkeley (SLaB), as well as a member of the editorial board for Lucero, the academic journal of the Department of Spanish & Portuguese at UC Berkeley.

*I acknowledge with respect the Ohlone people on whose traditional, ancestral, and unceded land I work and whose historical relationships with that land continue to this day.
