Why Is Ofelia García Influential?

According to Wikipedia, Ofelia García is Professor Emerita in the Ph.D. programs of Latin American, Iberian, and Latino Cultures and Urban Education at The Graduate Center, CUNY. She is best known for her work on bilingualism, translanguaging, language policy, sociolinguistics, and sociology of language. Her work emphasizes dynamic multilingualism, which is developed through "an interplay between the individual’s linguistic resources and competences as well as the social and linguistic contexts she/he is a part of." Rather than viewing a bilingual's languages as autonomous, García views language practices as complex and interrelated, as reflecting a single linguistic system.
