My research uses discourse analytic and ethnographic methods to examine the discursive construction of embodied identity in polycentric migrant environments. Employing multimodal and mediated discourse analysis, I explore patterns of chronotopic negotiation in text-based mobile and electronically mediated translocal interactions.
