My name is Jing Paul. I'm an Assistant Professor of Chinese in the Asian Studies Program at Agnes Scott College and the founding director of the Agnes Scott College Critical Language Immersion Program.
My research primarily investigates the typological characteristics of languages in expressing motion events through the lens of speech and gestures. I am also interested in applied aspects of linguistics, especially the integration of technology into language teaching, and second language pedagogy. An additional interest is sound symbolism in language evolution.
Please feel free to contact me if you're interested in chatting about teaching, brainstorming research ideas, or just getting some coffee.
