About Emma

Born and raised in the Southwest of France, I transitioned from a renowned food capital to the heart of the Midwest of America, in Oklahoma. I am currently a Graduate Teaching Assistant at Sooner Jump Start, an international pathway program at the University of Oklahoma, where I try to ensure the smooth transition of our international students. After getting a BA and an MA in History (focusing in Native American History) at the University of Bordeaux Montaigne, I earned a BA in English and moved back to Oklahoma to pursue a Ph.D. in Education at the University of Oklahoma. The story is more complex than this, but in between, I studied abroad in the US, China, and Israel. I am now a Ph.D. candidate, working on my dissertation. My scholarly interests are anchored in intersections between intercultural competence development, perspective transformation, and language learning motivation with a particular focus on international education contexts. I am also interested in curriculum ideologies and language revitalization.
