Hello and welcome to the personal website of Dr Kristof Savski. I am presently an Assistant Professor of Linguistics at the Faculty of Liberal Arts, Prince of Songkla University, in Hat Yai, Thailand. I received my MA and PhD from Lancaster University (UK) in 2012 and 2016 respectively. Here is my bio.
My expertise lies in sociolinguistics, applied linguistics, critical discourse studies and language policy. Much of my current research examines language in global and local relations of power, particularly the inequalities that the cross-border mobility of knowledge and people (i.e. globalization) produces and perpetuates in different contexts. A particular focus of my work is on transnational regimes in language policy, especially those linked to the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR). I also study other phenomena related to language and globalization, in particular teacher migration and inequality in contemporary ELT/TESOL. You can read more about my research interests here. My work has been published in several major journals, including Language Policy, TESOL Quarterly, Current Issues in Language Planning, Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development and Critical Discourse Studies. Additionally, I have authored chapters in edited collections published by Routledge, Palgrave MacMillan, Edward Elgar and others. Here is a full list of my publications.
In my current position, I also teach across a variety of different courses at both undergraduate and graduate level, including linguistics, applied linguistics and sociolinguistics, intercultural communication, language pedagogy, research methods, as well as language skills classes in academic reading and writing. I also advise graduate students at both the Masters and PhD levels (go to full list).
