Swati Mehta, Boston College, Chestnut Hill, MA is a doctoral candidate and fifth year student in the Curriculum and Instruction Program at Boston College.  Her dissertation topic is revealed in its proposed title:  Othered By English, A Smothered Spanish? - The Language Experiences of Nondominant Youth in the Context of New Immigration.  Swati is presently conducting an ethnographic case study at a local urban immigrant high school where she has been an active member of the community for the past few years.  In addition, from a theoretical lense, Swati is a budding researcher in the area of postcolonial studies, in particular its intersection and utility of application for problems in education.  Finally, in her work with teachers and teacher education, Swati employs critical action research lenses to lead teachers into conducting youth centered inquiries into their own practices.  Swati's passion lies at the nexus of working with young people, language, and culture.  Swati feels truly blessed to be a part of the Cultivating New Voices community and hopes to actively give back to this community now and in the future.
