O. Ivanova
Olga Ivanova is a lecturer in the Department of Linguistics at UCLA. She teaches elementary and intermediate Swahili, as well as courses on language and society. She holds a PhD in Applied Linguistics and her research interests focus on language, media, and publlic health in East Africa.
As a Russian born in Kazakhstan, I have been confronted with multicultural and multilingual situations since my early childhood. Through my personal experiences I learned that language is a gateway to a variety of cultural and social worlds. For me, these are Russian, English, German, and Swahili.
With my research I am pursuing to understand the role of language as one of the multimodal resources, which build, maintain, and transform existing  social order in a multilingual world. 
With my current project I am documenting the process of language socialization in youth peer education about reproductive health in Tanzania. I seek to reveal the impact of such communication-based approach on participants' identities and ideologies.
