(December 2012 – December 2013) – Please visit! http://researchingmultilingually.com/
Richard Fay, together with several School of Education PGR alumni (Jane Andrews, Mariam Attia, Xiaowei Zhou), is now part of a three-university collaboration which was recently successful in receiving AHRC-funding for the above project which focuses on:
a) the experiences of doctoral (and other) researchers of using two or more languages in their research (e.g. generating data in several languages and deciding how to analyse these data sets and in what languages to do so);
b) their strategies for dealing with the complexities and possibilities of conducting and reporting these studies in an English-medium academic and examination context; and
c) their rationales for their developing multilingual research practice.
So, if you are undertaking your research multilingually – or could so so – and would like to contribute to the project in some way (e.g. offering a paper for one of the three seminars that take place in the spring, by contributing your story of researching multilingually to those already appearing in the above website, etc), please contact Richard Fay .
