Alex Baratta The University of Manchester, UK
Alex Baratta is a linguist whose research interests are focused on language and identity, including linguistic prejudice and linguistic rights. However, his initial teaching and research experiences were centred on academic writing and critical thinking, topics he continues to write on, having taught academic writing in South Korea, the UK and his native USA, as part of English 101.
How to Read and Write Critically is his fifth book on the subject of academic writing and critical thinking, with other books focused on accent preference within British teaching (2018); World Englishes (2019); a collection of short stories with twist endings (2019); and Korean English (2021). Alex has been published in leading journals and has presented his research at international conferences in Australia, Singapore and South Africa.
