Dr Jeff Bezemer

Jeff Bezemer is a Senior Research Fellow at the Institute of Education, University of London, and Deputy Director of MODE: Multimodal Methodologies for Researching Digital Data and Environmens, a node of the National Centre for Research Methods. He is also convenor of the Linguistic Ethnography Forum, a Special Issue Group of the British Association of Applied Linguistics.

Jeff’s research and teaching is focused on four areas:

  • Multimodality, literacy and pedagogy. This work looks at  changes in the use of image and writing in the 21st century and their implications for literacy and learning. Much of this work is based on a social semiotic research project on school textbooks funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (2007-2009, with Gunther Kress).
  • Multilingualism and education. This work looks at learning, schooling, identities and language ideologies in contexts of linguistic, cultural and social diversity. Much of this work is based on a Dutch-Norwegian, school ethnographic research project funded by the respective departments of education (1999-2003, with Sjaak Kroon, Guus Extra and others).

Jeff studied Applied Linguistics and Education at Tilburg University, Netherlands (MA, 1999; PhD, 2003) and worked at Babylon, Centre for Studies of the Multicultural Society before settling in London, where he has worked at Imperial College London (2009-2011), King’s College London (2010-2011) and the Institute of Education, University of London (2004-2009 and from 2011).
