University of Edinburgh PhD candidate Mariel Deluna is investigating teacher perspectives on the relationship between “race”, language, ethnicity, and nationality.
Current secondary school Modern Language teachers in Scotland
The goal of the study is to explore the connection between "race", ethnicity, and language in Scotland's modern language classrooms, discussing topics related to racialised, ethnic, and language identities; racial literacy, anti-racism; decolonisation; and race equality in education. The research will benefit participants by providing a space for reflection on race and language, and it also hopes to contribute to anti-racist professional development and teacher training courses in Scotland.
