Profile picture of E. (Erika) Darics, PhD


I am a language-focussed, critical discourse analyst/applied linguist interested in the role of language in professional and business contexts, in particular online. In my work I explore how language constitutes our social reality, and how we can best educate the world about this important knowledge. 
I conduct empirical linguistic-discourse analytical research, theorise and educate  about language awareness and discourse consciousness. I am an experienced and passionate researcher-educator with a sense of responsibility to nurture a future generation of critical text consumers who are also ethical, responsible and empowered communicators.
I lead on courses based on discourse analysis, often with a business/professional communication slant. I co-host the Words and Actions podcasts and am the proud co-author of the textbook Language in Business, Language at Work (working currently on the 2nd edition).
