Dr. Claire Kramsch
- Professor of German and Education at the University of California, Berkeley
- Author of The Multilingual Subject: What language learners say about their experience and why it matters (Oxford University Press, 2009); Distinguished Teaching Award & Distinguished Service Award from the Modern Language Association, 2000.
When cultures engage, inevitably altering experiences, practices, and worldviews, new identities emerge. Multilingual and multicultural studies are vital to a fully informed approach to an array of disciplines. They affect our pedagogical approaches, our understanding of discourse, our interpretations of classic and modern literatures, and our appraisal of the evolution of culture, language, and interpersonal interaction.
