Lecturer of Spanish Linguistics


Dr. Jhonni Carr holds a PhD in Hispanic Linguistics from the University of California, Los Angeles. She currently teaches in the Department of Spanish & Portuguese at the University of California, Berkeley and was previously a Visiting Assistant Professor at UCLA. Specializing in Spanish Sociolinguistics, she investigates the power dynamics of languages in contact in the public space of Southern California and Mexico. She uses interdisciplinary methods to explore these areas’ signage (i.e. linguistic landscape) and residents’ attitudes toward the presence and absence of different languages. Dr. Carr has published work related to the concept of language solidarity, as well as language attitudes with respect to varying pronunciations of Spanish and English and the intersection between U.S. Latinx culture and Food Studies. Her research has been supported by the U.S. Department of Education, the American Federation of Teachers, the UC Regents, and the UC Berkeley Institute of International Studies.
