This lecture addresses four key concepts: language, culture, identity, and writing, with identity being the primary one. The author examines the phenomenon of additional language academic writers studying in an additional culture, and how their migrating experiences, crossing from one culture to another, affect their personal and writer identities. The study employed five Chinese students studying at an English-speaking university in Canada, enrolled full-time in Master‘s or doctoral programs in humanities and social sciences, which require considerable academic writing and advanced writing skills in English. Data were drawn from a questionnaire, writing samples, interviews, and email correspondence. The author elaborated on the connections of personal identity and writer identity, and conceptualized for English-as-an-Additional-Language (EAL) speakers a mediated space incorporating home culture and host culture but going beyond the overlap of the two, as well as a mediated self that is achieved through negotiation with the available options in their respective social context.
