English Language Professor, University of Ljubljana
Lara Burazer is a university professor, holding a Master’s in Discourse Analysis and a PhD in Translation Studies. She is currently teaching at the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia, at the English Department of the Faculty of Arts. In over 20 years of dedicated work for the University, she has successfully tackled many challenges, on academic as well as personal level, but she has always been a devoted student of life. Among the many life roles, she has assumed that of wife of over 20 years, mother of three daughters, author, sister, aunt, friend, confidante, and many more, which have all provided valuable insights into the matrix of life.
Professionally and academically, she has been involved in research related to the concepts of global connectivity, in which the English language tends to assume an important position as the dominant lingua franca. Having lived in the UK and the US for a while, she has gained international experience and has expanded her perception of cultural as well as linguistic and other types of diversity, which proved to be an invaluable contribution in her investigations of global cultural trends and societal perspectives.
