Dr. Lubie Grujicic-Alatriste, Associate Professor

English and Applied Linguistics ESOL Coordinator

Lubie Grujicic-Alatriste holds a doctorate in Applied Linguistics from Columbia University, Teachers College and an MA in Applied Linguistics and TESOL from the University of Surrey, United Kingdom.  She has presented around the world from Hong Kong and Australia to Europe, United States and Hawaii. Professor Grujicic-Alatriste’s research combines systemic-functional linguistics, composition and rhetoric studies, and second language acquisition. Her current work is in genre analysis of academic student and professional writing. At present Dr. Grujicic-Alatriste is researching student-generated argumentative compositions and is developing a theoretical taxonomy of  “school genres” – types of writing done by students and faculty within the academic discourse community. Her most recent textbook has applied the tenets of genre scholarship  to  more closely reflect the 21st century media, spoken and written genres for urban college writers.
