Åsa Wedin, Professor in Educational Work, PhD in Linguistics

With a background as a primary school teacher, Wedin’s main research interests are in multilingualism and literacy in education. She has carried out research in Tanzania, on literacy practices in primary school, and in Sweden on literacy and interactional patterns in classrooms and on conditions for multilingual students’ learning. Her research is based on ethnographically inspired research, particularly linguistic ethnography and theoretical perspectives where languaging is studied as social and cultural practices and where opportunities for learning are related to questions of power.
