Biography

I worked at the Centre for English Studies, University of Birmingham, from 1996 to 2012. I am currently working at the Federal University of Santa Catarina, Brazil.

Teaching

The courses I generally teach are: Discourse, Culture and Communication, Media Language, Language and Gender, Narrative Analysis, and Translation Studies.

Research

My research is located principally in the paradigm of Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA), examining the ways in which language constructs and is constructed by social practices, participants and ideologies. Myer edited collection Texts and Practices: Readings in Critical Discourse Analysis, (Routledge, 1996), was a landmark publication, significant in establishing the field of Critical Discourse Analysis. I am currently investigating how identities are construed semiotically in discourse and how multi-modes of communication contribute to the overall meanings of texts. A particular interest is the question of how gender and cultural representations are realised in the discourse of the media and in new technologies. .

Other activities

During my career I have made 140  (30 were keynote addresses and 25 invited participation at plenary roundtables) presentations at conferences and at universities in Argentina, Australia, Austria, Brazil, Britain, Chile, Costa Rica, Cyprus, Denmark, Greece, Germany, Finland, Hungary, Italy, Ireland, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Spain, Sweden, The Netherlands, and the USA.
