I’m Lucy Jones, an Associate Professor in Sociolinguistics based at the University of Nottingham in the UK. My pronouns are she/her.
I’m interested in the connections between language, culture and society, focusing specifically on issues related to sexuality and gender. I look at how speakers produce identities relevant to their gender and sexuality through their interaction, and how LGBTQ people are represented in the media. I am inspired by sociocultural linguistics, discourse analysis, ethnography and queer theory.
This blog details my recent and current research. You can also find me on Twitter.
