Project Description

By unraveling the complex relationships between identity and learning this project contributes to debates about the transnational literacies appropriate to globalisation. The Greek diaspora is long-standing and complex and promises rich insights relevant to theoretical developments and the relationship between schooling, identity and cultural difference more broadly. Year 10 students at full and part-time Greek schools and a state school teaching Greek are the focus. The use of diasporic space, classroom practice and student narratives are explored to investigate interrelationships between dynamic identity formation and transnational literacy development, which will strengthen Australia s economic and social fabric.
