The Academy for Socioeconomic Linguistics (ASEcoLi) was founded and is run by Professor Dr. Joachim Grzega.

Joachim Grzega is a linguist at the university of Eichstätt and has also taught at Münster, Bayreuth, Erfurt and Freiburg (all Germany). He was director of Europäisches Haus Pappenheim and is currently coordinator of the project Innovative European Language Teaching (Innovative Europäische Sprachlehre) at VHS Donauwörth.
Grzega’s special fields are (1) the beginning of learning a foreign (European) language, (2)the link between language, thinking, acting, cultural developments and political asoects, (3) the humorous teaching of political and cultural topics.
Grzega is the editor of an academic on-line journal and the author of several books and several dozens of scholarly articles.

ASEcoLi is driven by the philosophy that linguistics should see how it can contribute to the explanation and solution of problems in modern societies.
