LRDG seminar: Literacy network analyses of a Chinese migrant child's multiliteracy practices in Britain

Date: 29 January 2008 Time: 1.00 - 2.00 pm

Literacy network analyses of a Chinese migrant child's multiliteracy practices in Britain

Jing Sheng, Lancaster University

Since the 1980s when studies of Chinese children in Britain first appeared, the identity formation and multi-literate developments of Chinese immigrant students - those who have received some Chinese education in China and come to Britain later - still remain under-explored within sociology and sociolinguistics. This paper focuses on my doctoral research exploring issues with social network and identities formations implicated in Chinese immigrant children's Chinese and English uses in Britain. The research is grounded in New Literacy Studies (NLS). The data I am going to present is Ming's poker play literacy practices and online news reading practices respectively. I will present how I use the components of literacy events, literacy practices, and another new concept (literacy events network) to analyze Ming's multiliteracy practices in Britain.
