Katie Harrison is currently working as a Research Associate on the Multilingual Manchester project in the School of Arts, Languages and Cultures at the University of Manchester. She completed her Ph.D. in Linguistics (Modern Languages) at the University of Nottingham in September 2019, and previously completed an MRes in Russian and East European Studies and a BA in English Studies in Russian, also at the University of Nottingham. Katie's Ph.D. thesis provided a sociolinguistic examination of the Ukrainian community in the United Kingdom, focusing on language practices, language attitudes and ideologies, and factors influencing the intergenerational transmission and maintenance of Ukrainian within this community. The current research project she is involved in as part of the Multilingual Manchester project aims to survey supplementary schools in Greater Manchester and discover more about the running of these schools and the challenges they face.
