BIO
Lourdes Ortega’s main area of research is in second language acquisition, particularly socio-cognitive and educational dimensions in adult classroom settings. She has also long-standing interests in second language writing and foreign language education and has published widely about systematic research synthesis and epistemological and ethical dimensions of second language acquisition research. In the last few years she has become interested in applying insights from bilingualism, usage-based linguistics, and social justice to the investigation of second language development. She received her Ph.D. from the University of Hawaii (2000) and has been a doctoral Mellon fellow (1999), a postdoctoral Spencer/National Academy of Education fellow (2003), a senior research fellow at the Freiburg Institute of Advanced Studies (2010), and a Distinguished Visiting Fellow at the Advanced Research Collaborative, CUNY Graduate Center (2018). Her publications include the books Understanding Second Language Acquisition (Hodder, 2009; published in Mandarin in 2016) and The Cambridge Handbook of Bilingualism (with Annick De Houwer; 2019). She is Associate General Editor of Language Learning and a member of the Board of Trustees of the Center for Applied Linguistics. At Georgetown University she is also founding member and convener of the Initiative for Multilingual Studies.
