Colvin, C., Fozdar, F. and Volet, S. (2012) Intercultural interactions in university tutorials: A Bourdieusian analysis. In: HERDSA 2012, 2 - 5 July 2012, Hotel Grand Chancellor, Hobart, Tasmania pp. 11-22.
This research explores mono-cultural, mono-lingual local student perceptions of intercultural interactions in structured university learning environments through the lens of Bourdieu’s social field theory. Employing qualitative analysis, this study revealed intercultural interactions to be co-shaped by structural, institutional and contextual elements, as well as the personal dispositions students bring to the classroom. Implications for University providers are discussed.
