On March 13, alumna Dr. Christine Kampen Robinson (former UWaterloo PhD-student in Germanic & Slavic Studies) will come back to campus to present on her dissertation research in our graduate course “Language, Identity and Mobility” and to participate in the graduate seminar. Her research on Low German-speaking Mennonites from Mexico with a focus on identity, literacy, and language learning in this migration context encompasses several aspects of the course. Christine is an Interactional Sociolinguist and currently Assistant Professor of Practicum and Social Sciences at Canadian Mennonite University in Winnipeg.
