Personal profile

Biography

Hanna Torsh is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Linguistics and a member of the Language on the Move research team. Her research interests are language in migration, multilingual families and family language policy and practice, language learning and teaching, and intercultural communication.

Hanna completed her PhD in Linguistics with an exploration into linguistically intermarried couples. The thesis examined how language learning trajectories, gender and migration status came into play in the participants’ constructions of the role of language in their relationships. The thesis won the 2019 Michael Clyne Award from the Australian Linguistic Society for a thesis into immigrant bilingualism and language contact.

In 2020 Hanna’s first book, Linguistic Intermarriage in Australia: Between pride and shame, was published by Palgrave Macmillan. She is currently working on a number of projects, including an exploration of second language speakers in reality television shows, in collaboration with colleagues in Law. Hanna tweets about her research at @HannaTorsh.
