Personal profile

Dr Tracey Fallon is lecturer in Chinese Studies at the University of Nottingham Ningbo. Tracey’s research interests are in the convergences between culture and politics of contemporary China. She completed her PhD thesis “Nationalism, National Identity and Politics in the Teaching of Chinese as a Foreign Language" at The University of Nottingham, UK. This research explores the transnational reproduction of China’s official national identity by examining four decades of Mandarin textbooks for foreign learners from the late pre-reform era to the present-day. Employing discourse analysis, it traces how Chinese people, China, and its relationship to the world is articulated to the sympathetic foreigner and the significance of China’s international promotion of Mandarin for its foreign propaganda. She teaches courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate level on the making of modern China in the Late Qing and Republican era; intersections in ideology, culture and society of contemporary China; and research techniques for the study of contemporary China.

Prior to undertaking her doctorate, Tracey worked for many years in education, teaching within FE and HE and project managing international programmes between China and the UK as well as support of interdisciplinary research activities.  She holds a MA (Hons) in History of Art from the University of Glasgow, a Masters in Chinese Studies from the University of Edinburgh, and a PGCE in Adult and Higher Education from the University of Bolton. Tracey has extensive experience in China, working and studying in many different parts of the country.
