I’m a first-year Ph.D. scholar within the Language and Literacies Schooling program at OISE/UofT. Throughout my MA diploma at OISE, I explored how Western affect had affected Chinese language doctoral college students’ understanding of the West earlier than they got here to Canada, in addition to their resolution to pick Canada because the vacation spot to advance their tutorial careers.
Though my MA thesis centered on the cultural consciousness and identification growth of a particular group of scholars who got here to Canada as youth, I’m all the time conscious of the important position of language schooling in shaping college students’ understanding of their tradition and identities, in addition to how language schooling can perpetuate stereotypes and deficit pondering towards marginalized college students. Language is all the time a service of tradition.
Current scholarship has discovered that the implementation of language schooling coverage can negatively impression marginalized communities and Indigenous individuals by selling and sustaining white supremacy inside coverage discourse. In my doctoral examine, I’m concerned with wanting on the intersection of language schooling coverage and linguistic hierarchization in Canada, extra particularly the racial and linguistic hierarchization inside coverage discourse.
