Title & Reference code
Negotiating Multilingual Identities in Migrant Professional Contexts
Through an interview research with diverse migrant groups in different English-dominant countries, this project aims to understand the communication strategies and tacit skills professional migrants adopt to resolve their identity conflicts. Led by Penn State, researchers from universities in Bristol, Cape Town, Hong Kong, Leeds, Madison, Rochester, Sydney, and York will interview skilled migrants from a specific speech community in their own locations to elicit narratives on the following questions:
1. What are the social and communicative dynamics of professional interaction in the transnational workplace?
2. What are the ways in which skilled migrants resolve the dilemmas between their local linguacultural identities and transnational professional relationships in workplace interactions?
3. What are the tacit forms of knowledge, values, and skills that enable skilled migrants to negotiate their interactional dilemmas effectively?
