Helen Kelly-Holmes is Professor in the School of Modern Languages and Applied Linguistics, University of Limerick, Ireland, where she holds the Chair in Applied Languages and is also Director of the Centre for Applied Language Studies. She previously worked as a Lecturer in German at Aston University, Birmingham, UK, before joining University of Limerick in 2002 as a Research Fellow. Her research focuses on the interrelationship between media and language and on the economic aspects of multilingualism, and she has published extensively in these areas. Recent publications include:Multilingualism and the Periphery(co-edited with Sari Pietikainen, Oxford University Press, 2013) andLanguage and the Media(edited Major Work, Routledge Critical Concepts in Linguistics, 2015). Her most recent publication isSociolinguistics from the Periphery: Small Languages in New Circumstances, co-authored with Sari Pietikainen, Nik Coupland and Alexandra Jaffe, and published by Cambridge University Press. In the book, Helen and her co-authors argue that peripheral sites and small languages have a core role to play in sociolinguistic theory and in understanding the sociolinguistics of globalization, which has tended to be driven by urban sites and big languages. Helen has been a keynote speaker at many of the main conferences in the field, including the Sociolinguistics Symposium and the International Symposium on Bilingualism. Helen is Co-Editor of the journalLanguage Policy(with Ofelia Garcia) and of Palgrave's Language and Globalization book series (with Sue Wright).
