Soria Blumer

Soria is currently pursuing a Master’s degree in Multilingualism at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands, having earned her Bachelor's degree in Linguistics and Political Science from the University of Concordia in Montreal, Canada.

Passionate about multilingualism, minority languages, and sociopolitical dynamics, her research centers on understanding language attitudes among French-Canadian heritage speakers and migrants in Quebec. Specifically, she is interested in exploring the nuanced relationships among language policies, individual language choices, the preservation of heritage and minority languages, and the role of multilingualism in this context.

Soria brings a global perspective to her work, with international experience living in China, Singapore, Canada, Ireland, and Netherlands. Her research also encompasses a consideration of factors such as race, culture, and identity, aiming to understand how these elements intersect and influence language dynamics within the local sociopolitical context and the broader Canadian landscape
