Anne Kari Bjørge is professor of English. She has her doctoral degree in English linguistics from the University of Bergen (2001). Her present research interests and recent publications focus on English as a lingua franca (ELF) in international business, and how the choice of corporate language for a multilingual workforce impacts on social and professional identity.
Other publications concern how negotiators handle conflict in ELF negotiations discourse, and how their practice relates to relevant theory.
Her teaching profile concentrates on cross-cultural and communication issues in various professional and international settings.
Anne Kari is active in the CEMS Global management practice network and the CEMS Language subcommittee. Anne Kari received NHH's publication bonus in 2012 for her article in Applied Linguistics on expressing disagreement in ELF negotiations. She was head of department for the period 2013–2017.
