Who We Are‎ > ‎

Prof.dr. Chris Chi-Chiang Shei

Department of Applied Linguistics, College of Arts and Humanities           Swansea University, UK


Research Interests 

My primary research interests are corpus linguistics, discourse analysis, translation studies, and language education. I am particularly interested in the use of computer and web resources for linguistic research, language education and translating. Recently I have been expanding my research into Chinese Studies (notably including Chinese sociology and political science) through my existing engagement with political discourse analysis, by compiling a Routledge Handbook in Chinese Studies, which is designed to give a comprehensive and in-depth new definition of the term Chinese Studies. The handbook is scheduled to be released in 2021.
