This is an exciting opportunity to join the Social Psychology group in the interdisciplinary Department of Social Sciences at Loughborough University. The Department of Social Sciences is internationally renowned for its excellence in research, teaching and enterprise, and is consistently ranked in research assessments as one of the best social sciences departments in the UK.

The project's goals are as follows:

  • To describe the linguistic practices of South Asian and newly-arrived and cross-border students from Mainland China in the context of their trajectories across different social domains, communicative genres and settings inside and outside the schools in Hong Kong.
  • To analyze the identities that are constructed for and by these students, and how, in the course of these trajectories.
  • To examine whether these practices, identities and trajectories are shaped by wider linguistic, social and/or cultural ideologies that impact on these students’ socio-economic position.
  • To identify possible mismatches (if any) between language-in-education demands on these students and the type of practices and linguistic repertoires available to them outside the schools.
  • To design a resource package for educators and policy makers with guidelines and examples of activities on trans-lingual, trans-cultural and trans-literacy pedagogies in the Hong Kong context.
