Linguistic and Cultural Ecology

Exploring who speaks what language to whom and when, this research aims to gain an understanding of the interactions between Hong Kong, Mainland and international students in a teacher university (HKIEd) in Hong Kong. Specifically, this study investigates how national, ethnic and regional identities are presented and constructed linguistically and culturally by students and how the interactions between individuals are shaped by the multiple power-laden discursive and social practices in a multilingual setting like Hong Kong.
