About the Author

Julie Choi is Lecturer in Education (Additional Languages), Melbourne Graduate School of Education, University of Melbourne, Australia.


"Extremely interesting and well researched, this book explores a key development of globalization: the mobility of people and its impact on the individual finding her place between languages and cultures. The author succeeds in presenting her arguments in a highly accessible style alternating between first-person narrative and discursive argumentation, which will no doubt appeal to a large audience in the fields of Applied Linguistics and Language Education. This is a milestone publication in the field of multilingualism, because it adds new aspects to understanding and thus conceptualizing the multilingual subject. With the radical focus on her personal experience and voice, the author makes dimensions of identity creation accessible-an approach that previous books have not taken into consideration." Michael Legutke, Distinguished Senior Professor, Justus Liebig University Giessen, Department of English, Germany "Innovative and pioneering in both research methodology and choice of research topic, this is the first book of its kind. Enchanting and ground-breaking, this authoethnography shows convincingly how the learning of a first/second/third/... language is inseparable from one's constant searching for a voice, a place, and a self in this world." Angel Lin, Professor, University of Hong Kong
