Bio/Research

Magda Stroinska is Professor of German and Linguistics and served as a Research Fellow at Kingston University, UK from 1996 until 2001. Major areas of research include sociolinguistics and cross-cultural communication, in particular cultural stereotyping, language and politics, propaganda, the issues of identity in exile, aging and bilingualism. More recent areas of interest and research focus on the effects of texting on literacy and language and psychological trauma. She co-edited a book on stereotypes in language teaching with Martin Loeschmann (Stereotype im Fremdsprachenunterricht, 1998, Peter Lang) and edited a volume on linguistic representations of culture (Relative points of view, 2001, Berghahn Publishers). Together with Vikki Cecchetto, she edited a volume on Exile, language and identity (published in 2003 by Peter Lang) and International classroom: Challenging the notion (published in 2006 by Peter Lang). She also translated into Polish Victor Klemperer's book on language of the Third Reich (Lingua Tertii Imperii, Polish Publishing Fund in Toronto, 1993). She is currently working on another edited volume on language and trauma (with Vikki Cecchetto and Kate Szymanski) for Berghahn and continues to study the language of totalitarian regimes and its effects in post-communist Eastern Europe.
