Voicing as an Essential Problem of Communication: Language and Education of Chinese Immigrant Children in Globalization
Dong, Jie; Dong, Yan
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v44 n2 p161-176 Jun 2013
This article explores voicing processes of identity construction among labor immigrants both inside China and in the Dutch Chinese Diaspora. We provide ethnographically grounded data oriented toward a theoretical point: voicing is an essential problem in communication. Whether one is able to achieve his voice--an outcome of a communicative process--is often conditioned by pretextual factors that exist before and beyond communication, and has to be negotiated in the communicative process. (Contains 1 table and 1 note.)
