Biographical details

Dr. Andrew Ross is a Lecturer in TESOL in the Sydney School of Education and Social Work. Andrew’s work is diverse and interdisciplinary in nature, but with two key themes. First, his work has mapped the relationship between language learner emotions and their motivation to learn another langauge. More recently, Andrew's work has focused on critical discourse studies, particularly in the area of new media (e.g. Internet memes, Twitter). Andrew is interested in continuing to explore the manner in which new media platforms are re-shaping language use and communication, with a particular focus on the socio-political domain.
