Emmanuelle Sarah Chiocca
Assistant Professor of English Language at Duke Kunshan University

I specialize in the investigation of learning experiences that result in perspective transformation and intercultural competence development in international educational contexts.

Current Research Interests

I am currently working on a couple of research projects investigating the perspective transformation of students in a translingual and intercultural higher education environment via the Third Space Lab which I co-direct. I am particularly interested in what students perceive to lead to their transformation and in the ways students believe they changed. 

I am also revising a manuscript on the perspective transformation of students who participated in a short-term study abroad in the Middle East, writing a manuscript on optimizing short-term study abroad programs via transformative learning, revising a book chapter with several colleagues on innovative orientation programs involving language and intercultural development, and working on an article on the collaborative practice of faculty members during COVID-19 through a transformative learning lens.
