Nicklas Junker, MA student, Stockholm University

I am a master student in Asian Studies (and in linguistics  – Swedish being my specialized field) at Stockholm University. I have a B.A. in Chinese and a B.A. in linguistics. My current project is on place and identity in Hong Kong literature written in Chinese. How do Chinese writers identify and depict themselves in a metropolis that have changed from being a British colony into a Chinese Special administrative region? How is place and identity being put forward in Hong Kong literature, and (how) has it changed during the last decades considering the handover?



Thien Nguyen, MA student, University of Tampere

I am a student of the master program in Research and Innovation in Higher Education (MARIHE) under the management and funding of Erasmus Mundus Program. Currently I am writing my thesis on “Exploring Organizational Culture of Vietnamese Higher Education Institutions and Its Impact on Faculty Turnover”. My desire to explore this topic derives from the fact that there have been a few studies investigating turnover of faculty in Vietnamese institutions in spite of the increase of this phenomenon. In addition, the study also hopes to find trends and tendencies of the organizational culture of public universities in Vietnam. Also, it is expected that the findings of this study will enrich the existing literature on turnover and organizational culture. Comparing to research studies on the topic of faculty turnover, this thesis looks at the matter from the perspective of organizational culture which may be influenced by the academic culture of the country as well.
