Antje Muntendam



Assistant Professor

Professor Muntendam (MA Leiden University, Ph.D. University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign) is an Assistant Professor at Florida State University. Before joining Florida State University in August 2014, she worked as an Assistant Professor at Middlebury College and Radboud University Nijmegen (the Netherlands). Her research focuses on the linguistic outcomes of bilingualism and language contact, both in production and comprehension. Specifically, she is interested in the nature and direction of cross-linguistic influence and in code-switching. She has worked on Quechua-Spanish bilingualism in Bolivia, Peru and Ecuador, Turkish-Dutch bilingualism in the Netherlands, and (more recently) Spanish-English bilingualism in the United States.
