About Tommaso Milani

I joined the Department of Swedish at the University of Gothenburg in August 2017 to take up the position of (Full) Professor of Multilingualism. My research interests include language politics, language ideologies, language, gender and sexuality (with a focus on masculinities), Critical Discourse Analysis, multimodality, and performativity theory.

I completed my PhD at Stockholm University in 2007 with a thesis entitled "Debating Swedish: Language Politics and Ideology in Contemporary Sweden". The thesis explored the ways in which language politics, language ideology and national identity are entwined in debates over the Swedish language. After Stockholm, I moved to the University of Leeds in the United Kingdom where I was a Post-Doctoral Fellow on a large project funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) on the ways in which multilingualism is thematised on a website created by the BBC with the aim of promoting linguistic diversity in the United Kingdom.

After Leeds, I moved to the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa. There I conducted research on the ways in which gender, sexuality and race are imbricated in public spaces (online communities for men who are looking for other men, queer feminist protests against mainstream LGBT Pride parades, etc.)

I am co-editor of the journal Gender and Language with Carmen Rosa Caldas-Coulthard, and I sit on the editorial board of the following journals:
