PhD student researching Global citizenship development in relation to English as a Lingua Franca among Internationally mobile students.

Joining the faculty of Humanities at the UoS to pursue a PhD in MLL opened for me a fascinating opportunity to transform my passion for human rights, citizenship, and intercultural understanding issues within language education into a PhD project. In my thesis, I focus on Global citizenship education through the lens of English as a Lingua France perspective. It is during my PhD in MLL at UoS that I developed a different view of notions of language, culture, identity and nation and the relationship between them, and using ELF as a framework enabled to enrich further my PhD project. I hope that my research will help to understand better the role of English and multilingualism in global citizenship education and that it hopefully will bring these two areas of research closer
