Toward a Narrative-Ethnographic Approach to Heritage Language Research with Dr. Agnes He (Stony Brook University)

November 9 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

In this talk, Dr. He present s a qualitative approach to research on heritage language

development – narrative ethnography, which integrates text-based methods of narrative

analysis with field-based, interaction-enriched methods of linguistic anthropology. The

lecture will begin with an over view of its genesis , its distinctive theoretical

foundations , its  methodological orientations , and its core concept s and central questions . It

will be then illustrated how this approach is practiced, in the case of research on Chinese

as a heritage language. The talk will conclude with a consideration of the merit s and limit s

of this approach and its potential to advance knowledge about heritage language development and learning.
