Dan Golembeski teaches French at Grand Valley State University in Michigan. His research interests revolve around the field of sociolinguistics; he is especially intrigued by situations of language contact and minority language maintenance. For his doctoral thesis, he conducted fieldwork in Hearst, a French-speaking community in Northern Ontario, and over the past decade he has taken an interest in the linguistic situation of the island of Mayotte: he had the opportunity to travel there in 2003 and again in 2005. He is also a translator of travel literature and of works pertaining to environmental issues.
