xii ACKNOWLEDGMENT This thesis would not have been possible with the immense support, goodwill and generosity of many people. I would like to express my profuse gratitude to my supervisory team including Professor Murray Scott Henderson, Associate Professor Bryan Howieson and Dr Christopher Graves. Professor Henderson provided guidance from a wealth of experience and didn’t lose faith when reading long sentences of English delivered early on with German grammar. Associate Professor Howieson, who brought me back onto the path when I’d gotten lost in the literature, always tested my conceptual framework and research questions. I would like to thank my supervisory team for their academic and personal guidance and encouragement, their trust, never- ending patience and for being there when I needed them. The project has also benefited from other scholars who have provided feedback, guidance, inspirations and goodwill. The project would not have been possible without the support of the individuals that kindly agreed to be interviewed for this thesis, despite their busy timetables. I greatly appreciate their willingness and openness to contribute to this thesis. In particular, I would like to thank Robert Keys, who has been a kind and wise mentor. Finally, I want dedicate this thesis to my family. To my parents Robert and Nam Kyu, who gave me the basis for being able to do this work and who are always there for me. To my favourite sister Susi, who understands what it means to write a thesis and who knows how to make me smile. To Barbara, Richard, Michael and their kids for being my Australian family. And to my partner David, who was with me and supported me throughout this journey. Thank you, I love you.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
