Assoc Prof Rita Silver, Assoc Dean (Research Design & Integrity) at the Office of Education Research and Assoc Prof in the English Language and Literature Academic Group (ELL), NIE, and her PhD student have published in the International Journal of Multilingualism.

The article, titled “Linguistic schoolscapes of an ethnic minority region in the PRC: a university case study”, is authored by Ms Wu Ying, an ELL PhD student supervised by Assoc Prof Silver, and co-authored by Assoc Prof Silver and Zhang Hui, ELL PhD student. The paper examines linguistic schoolscapes—the linguistic landscape of educational spaces—to seek to understand the social meanings, and to recommend ways forward in supporting minority languages and multilingualism in the linguistic schoolscape.
