Biography

Kelle L. Marshall is associate professor of French at Pepperdine University and Coordinator of French at Pepperdine University. She holds an M.A. in French Linguistics from Arizona State University and a Ph.D. in French Linguistics from The University of Texas at Austin. Her research has focused on instructed second language acquisition and on North American Francophone linguistic identities and language ideologies. Her articles have appeared in Language in Society, The French Review, and Minorités linguistiques et société / Linguistic Minorities and Society, the International Journal of Research & Method in Education, and in Foreign Language Annals . Dr. Marshall's current research project, with Dr. Wendy Bokhorst-Heng (Crandall University, New Brunswick, Canada), unites these two areas of emphasis to investigate both linguistic identities and language ideologies among teachers, administrators, and students of French immersion education in Canada's only officially bilingual province, New Brunswick. This research focuses particularly on cultural instruction, intercultural competence, students' investment in language learning, and on immersion teachers as intercultural mediators.
