Neo-racism in a non-western university?

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Past research has well documented the challenges faced by the international students, particularly in the US and UK. Lee and Rice (2007), for example, identified a range of discriminatory acts towards international students, ranging from verbal insults to physical attacks. However, little is known about whether or the extent to which discrimination might occur in non-Western higher education settings.

The goal of this research is to examine the difficulties faced by international students in a non-Western country, South Korea. This study will examine student reports of discrimination in a case institution in Korea.

The conceptual framework for this study is neo-racism, which extends beyond traditional racism to include discrimination based on the country of origin and stereotypes associated with its culture. Beyond the color of one’s skin, neo-racism assumes a hierarchy of nations in which individuals from developing countries especially become targets of discrimination.

For methods, this study will incorporate both survey and interview data from a large private research university in Seoul, Korea. Quantitative analyses will include ANOVA and t-tests to compare experiences by country of origin. Qualitative analyses will include focused coding on various forms of difficulties, using Nvivo program, with particular attention on any forms of neo-racism.

Preliminary findings suggest that there is little, if any, overt discrimination in the case university setting. However, findings indicate that international students tend to experience different levels of discrimination by their countries of origin, particularly contrasted between major Western European countries, including those English-speaking ones, and non-Western developing countries. Findings also revealed more subtle forms of challenges associated with levels of study, undergraduate or graduate, and language abilities.
