Greg Niedt

Fulbright Study/Research Grant to the European Union, 2017-18

PhD student Communications, Culture, and Media



Drexel faculty mentor: Rachel Reynolds

Greg is a PhD candidate in Communication, Culture and Media. His primary research interest is the relationship between language, culture, and identity, particularly as it relates to urban diversity. Currently, he is working on his dissertation in South Philadelphia, examining how texts are used to claim and contest space by residents of different ethnolinguistic backgrounds, as well as the sociopolitical structures that shape (and are shaped by) this process. He hopes to compare his findings in an American context with those in an analogous European context, and has proposed conducting similar research in Germany, Italy, and France through the EU Fulbright grant.
