Deborah Keller-Cohen has conducted research on a wide range of areas using ethnographic, experimental, archival and textual methodologies. As a discourse analyst, her work has explored how people tell their life stories with particular emphasis on individual and gender related differences. Her work on literacy has examined both contemporary and historical American contexts. Her current line of work is concerned with language and aging. One strand examines the relationships among social relations, cognition and language in older adults. In a second line of work with Chris Odato, they have examined factors affecting the evaluation of older and younger individuals’ speech. She is also undertaking a project to explore discourses of aging in American culture.
