Michelle McSweeney

Michelle McSweeney is a Mellon Research Scholar in the Center for Spatial Research at Columbia University and an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Graduate School of Architecture Planning and Preservation. Her PhD is in Linguistics from the Graduate Center at CUNY, where she worked on questions of text messaging among bilinguals and how phone usage affects academic literacy skills. Her research examines how digital communication technologies have come to shape the language we use, and how languages in contact shape digital, social, and physical spaces.
