Aracely Aguilera is a second-year PhD student in the Language and Literacy Education program. She is Latina, Aymara, born and raised in Chile. Her graduate studies in English Linguistics, Educational Technologies, and Higher Education have led her to explore novice English language teachers’ attitudes toward technologies and implementation for motivational purposes in Chile. She has worked as a language coordinator and taught English for Specific Purposes at different universities in Chile. As a researcher, she supported building institutional evaluation capacity for academic and non-curricular programs at the University of Toronto. Her doctoral research interests lie in exploring university pedagogies and instructors’ praxis from a critical post-humanist/ feminist new materialist lens to shed light on the intra-action of digital technologies, plurilingualism, intercultural competencies, and institutional professional development as assemblages in colonial and neoliberal English language learning programs in Chile. In our LLED department, she has been assisting the Discourse Analysis for Educational Research interest group.
