Naomee-Minh Nguyen

Minh (she/her/hers) is a Ph.D. Candidate (ABD) in Linguistics at Georgetown University with a concentration in Sociolinguistics. She is currently working on her dissertation under the supervision of Dr. Cynthia Gordon. Her dissertation focuses on Asian Pacific Islander (API) identities and the linguistic resources that APIs use to index their ethnic and gender identities. Her project synthesizes the fields of interactional sociolinguistics, epistemic discourse analysis, and identity construction in everyday interaction.

Minh has experience in qualitative ethnographic research, sociolinguistic interviewing, and discourse analysis. Her other research interests include language and identity, queer communities, narrative studies, interactional sociolinguistics, and the Vietnamese diaspora. Some of Minh’s professional skills include working with content management systems, process management, and analyzing focus group data.

An unapologetically queer woman of color, Minh is passionate about engaging in dialogue within and between marginalized communities. Her work attempts to bridge the gap between academia and the public sphere. Have any questions? Contact her at nnn8@georgetown.edu.
