Eduardo Alves Vieira
Eduardo Alves Vieira is a University Lecturer at the Centre for Linguistics.
I received my Ph.D. in 2017 at the Autonomous University of Madrid (Spain) where I defended the thesis titled “Brazilian Portuguese in an International Context: a Sociolinguistic, Educational, Cultural, Economic and Geopolitical Study”. I have been teaching at Leiden University since 2016, where I am the Assistant Professor of Portuguese Language and Linguistics. I carry out my teaching activities at the BA/MA Latin American Studies and BA International Studies programs. My first main research project is a language policy study that examines the expansion of Portuguese throughout the world as an international language. Primarily, I analyze the cultural, educational, and economic processes that enable the diffusion of the Brazilian culture and its language. Moreover, I investigate the pros and cons regarding such a linguistic promotion process. My second main research project is a queer/LGBTQIA+ linguistics study in which I analyze how the Brazilian queer dialect Pajubá fosters language variation in Brazilian Portuguese. I am specialized in sociolinguistics and interested in areas such as pragmatics, critical discourse analysis, queer/LGBTQIA+ linguistics, as well as in studies on the relationship between majority and minority languages, heritage languages, multi/bilingualism, and language identities.
