Bio  

Doris Warriner is an Associate Professor of Applied Linguistics and Literacy in the Department of English at Arizona State University, where her research and teaching focus on experiences of migration, language learning and literacy development among refugee and immigrant families living in the U.S. She received her PhD in 2003 from the University of Pennsylvania's Graduate School of Education. Her dissertation, entitled 'Here without English You are Dead': Language Ideologies and the Experiences of Women Refugees Enrolled in an Adult ESL Program, examined how adult women learners of English (from the Sudan, Iran, and the former Yugloslavia) were positioned by institutional and ideological discourses, their responses to the positions ascribed to them, and the social and economic consequences of those responses. This dissertation was awarded the 2005 Outstanding Dissertation Award by the Council on Anthropology and Education, American Anthropological Association.

As a qualitative researcher, Warriner uses ethnographic methods to examine the educational, social, political, economic, and ideological dimensions of immigration and transnationalism. She also explores how communicative practices influence the lived experiences, literacy development and learning trajectories of immigrant and refugee families—and how these practices are shaped by globalization, ethnic conflict, immigration, and transnationalism.
