Dr Morozova is a D.Sc. in Linguistics, full Professor at V.N. Karazin Kharkiv National University, Ukraine, where she has taught since 1975, and since 2022, Assistant Professor of Ukrainian Studies at UBC. In her courses at UBC Dr Morozova focuses on the stories which are part of the information warfare that is going on alongside the military invasion of Ukraine by Russia, analyzing them using the theoretical tools of a number of modern-day humanities – psychology, sociology, linguistics, cognitive science, political science, etc.
Dr Morozova’s current research is aimed at improving the understanding of how language is used in macro-social contexts, in particular, discourses of the war waged by Russia against Ukraine; how the gap between the cognitive and linguistic aspects can be narrowed so as to put language into a more useful dialogue with linguistic cultural practices, such as language teaching.
