Anastassia Zabrodskaja


I am a Professor of Intercultural Communication at Tallinn University.

Senior Research Fellow in Sociolinguistics at the University of Tartu, in the project IUT20-3 "Sustainability of Estonian in the Era of Globalisation" where I concentrate on the intergenerational transmission of Estonian in interethnic (or transnational) families.

Following King et al. (2008), by family language policy I mean an integrated approach to how languages are managed, learned and negotiated within individual families. I focus on family language policy, language choice at home, and engagement with available linguistic resources (Soler and Zabrodskaja 2017; Karpava et al. 2018).
