Bio

Patricia Marques Friedrich is an associate professor of rhetoric and composition/linguistics in the Division of Humanities, Arts and Cultural Studies in ASU's New College of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences.  She received her Ph.D. in English linguistics, with an emphasis on sociolinguistics and a secondary concentration on historical linguistics, from Purdue University in 2001.  She also received her M.A. in English from Purdue (1997), earning ESL (English as a Second Language) endorsement at the same time.  Her undergraduate work was completed at Universidade de São Paulo (Brazil), where she was awarded her B.A. in English and Portuguese in 1992. 

Dr. Friedrich, who serves as a TRiO mentor at the West campus, is a sociolinguist whose scholarly interests include critical applied linguistics, critical theory, cross-cultural business communication, and language and peace.  Her main research interests are world Englishes and the spread of English throughout the world (which includes the politics of English and its interaction with social and economic phenomena).  Currently, she is working on the practical aspects of English as a Lingua Franca (a language systematically used to communicate between persons not sharing a mother tongue) in the classroom.  She is also editing a book on nonkilling linguistics (eg., the ways in which linguistics can contribute to a more peaceful world) and writing a single-authored book on the cultural construction of mental illnesses, especially their linguistic, literary and film representations.

A native of Brazil who also lived in Argentina before coming to the States, Dr. Friedrich is attracted to writing, particularly ESL, and the teaching of writing across different fields as well as investigating methodological aspects of research designs for the humanities.  She has published articles in journals such as World Englishes, International Journal of Applied Linguistics, and English Today and is an editorial board member of International Multilingual Research Journal and a reviewer for World Englishes and TESOL (Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages) Quarterly.

Among the New College coursework taught by Dr. Friedrich are undergraduate classes in composition, the study of language, rhetoric and grammar and persuasive writing.
