Mélodine Sommier

General description

Mélodine Sommier is currently working as an Academy of Finland Research Fellow at the Department of Language and Communication Studies (University of Jyväskylä, Finland). Within the field of Intercultural Communication, her work concentrates on the use of culture as a discursive and an interactional resource. She mostly relies on critical and discursive approaches to examine the construction of cultural realities and outcomes regarding the (re)production of difference. Her research project on ‘racial landscapes’ (2022-2027) focuses on the way race and racism materialize in everyday urban spaces across Europe in ways that contribute to (re)produce and contest existing discourses and processes of racialization.

Mélodine is chair of the Intercultural and International Communication division at the European Communication Research and Education Association (ECREA), board member of the Society for the Study of Ethnic Relations and International Migration (ETMU) and an active member of the Kielikampus Equity Team.
