Celia Roberts [+]
King's College, London
Celia Roberts is Emeritus Professor of Applied Linguistics at King's College, London.
This chapter focuses on those aspects of the linguistic penalty which stem from different experiences of work and of selection processes and of presenting the institutional self, before coming to the UK. This somewhat different cultural capital is then compared with the discursive and communicative regimes of the interview.
