Mathias Schwab

Ph.D. Student


As a sociolinguist, I am interested in equality of educational opportunities, and especially in the teaching and assessment of oral skills. The new "grand oral" baccalauréat exam is the focus of my current field research. My academic interests also include language contact, L2 didactics, Francophone literature, Mediterranean studies, and Marseille's football culture. I chose to study in the United States to incorporate postcolonial and gender studies perspectives into my work.
