Transnational narratives of ecological socialisation: exploring multilingual international students’ sociospatial practices through interview conversations

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This study explores multilingual international students’ narratives of mobility and socialisation through online discursive spaces of interview conversations. Drawing upon an ecological approach to transnational narratives, the researcher analyzed international students’ multiscalar interactions and transformations in sociospatial practices. The analyses provide ethnographic accounts of the participants’ translingual discourses, transcultural trajectories, and translocal community lives that involve transnational connections across temporal and spatial borders. The findings also suggest that interview conversations with peers promote international students’ dynamic narrations of their life experiences of multilingual mobility in continuously evolving ecological communities.
