Simona Pekarek Doehler
Simona Pekarek Doehler is professor of Applied Linguistics at the University of Neuchâtel, Switzerland. In her research she seeks to understand how participants in talk-in-interaction use grammar as a resource to accomplish social actions and how, in turn, linguistic and communicative resources emerge from the process of interaction. Central lines of her research are dedicated to exploring the development of interactional competence in a second language and to investigating how linguistic and bodily resources combine in social interaction. She is co-editor of two collections of longitudinal conversation analytic studies, including a special issue of ROLSI 54:2 (2021), and has recently co-edited an e-book in Frontiers entitled The Grammar-body Interface in Social Interaction (2022) as well as a special issue of the Modern Language Journal entitled Emergent L2 Grammar-for-Interaction: Toward an Interactional Usage-Based SLA (2022).
