Valériane Mistiaen is a FWO post-doc researcher at VUB-Vrije Universiteit Brussel. She holds a PhD in Information and Communication (ULB-Université libre de Bruxelles) and Communication and Media Studies (VUB). Her PhD research combines Discourse Analysis with Corpus Linguistics to study how denominations used to name people on the move in Belgian French- and Dutch-language media build the public issue of migration differently in both linguistic communities of Belgium. Her current research focuses on how grammatical morphology carries ideology in state-induced return discourse related to migration. This research is carried out in French, Dutch, Spanish and English. Valériane also teaches Discourse Analysis and Spanish sociolinguistics at the ULB.
