Sylvia Beato is a writer and an educator.
Her work revolves around the phenomenology of the body, the politics of linguistics, and post-colonial identity. Her research interests focus on how youth use language to understand and navigate their position as first or second generation Americans. Centered primarily in Spanish-English bilingual spaces, she is committed to understanding ways in which culture shapes language use and change.
She lives in Brooklyn with her wife and their dog.
