Professor Rosamond Mitchell is an Emeritus Professor of Applied Linguistics in Modern Languages at the University of Southampton.
I studied Early & Modern Irish at Trinity College Dublin and taught French and Irish in a Dublin comprehensive school. I worked as a researcher and lecturer in applied linguistics in Stirling and in Edinburgh before moving to the University of Southampton in the 1980s. After many years in the School of Education I joined the School of Humanities/ Modern Languages in 2004, where I was founding director of the Centre for Applied Language Research and Head of Department of Modern Languages (2011-2013). Following my retirement in spring 2014 I am now attached to Modern Languages as Emeritus Professor.
