Research Focus: Developmental and cross-cultural psychology over the life-span with a special focus on identity development in multicultural and multilingual contexts. How do people living within culturally diverse societies, experience this meeting of cultures?

Elke Murdock is Collaboratrice de Recherche in Development and Cultural Psychology at the Institute for Research on Generations and Family, Research Unit INSIDE, at the University of Luxembourg. Within her research area, identity construal in multicultural and multilingual contexts, she focuses on three different, yet interlinked, research topics:

  • Attitudes towards multiculturalism, especially from the perspective of the host society.
  • Biculturalism – coming from or belonging to more than one culture. A better understanding of biculturalism, the techniques bicultural individuals employ to negotiate and resolve cultural differences within themselves and with others can contribute to an improved understanding of intercultural relations.
  • Development of national identities and supra-national identities such as European identity or the identification with all humanity (IWAH), and their relationship with each other. 

Elke Murdock joined INSIDE in 2010 as an FNR–funded PhD student; her PhD thesis was entitled “Multiculturalism within the Luxembourg Context”. Upon its completion (2014), she joined the Institute for Research on Generations and the Family as a postdoctoral researcher, working on the project Intergeneration Relations in the Light of Migration and Aging (IRMA). Dr Murdock was then successful in obtaining a CORE Junior Track Grant from the FNR, in her project Subjective Well-being and Identity Construal in a Changing World (SWITCH) which started in April 2017.

Prior to (re-)joining the world of academia, Elke Murdock worked in the area of strategic development and planning in the Financial Services Industry. From 1990 to 2002 she worked for an Edinburgh based Life Assurance company and participated in joint venture projects in Sweden, Germany, Luxembourg and Italy. Prior to joining INSIDE she worked in Investor Communications in Luxembourg.  

Her academic training started at the University of the Saarland (Germany) where she studied psychology. Her diploma thesis was: Kulturelle Identität – eine Konzeptanalyse im interdisziplinären Raum. An Erasmus stipend took her to the University of Aberdeen (Scotland, UK) and a Fulbright scholarship to Western Washington University, Bellingham, WA (USA) where she earned a BA and an MSc degree. She also holds a MBA from the Edinburgh Business School (Thesis: The Bundesbank from an Anglo-German Perspective).

Her studies were reported in the FNR Highlights series – Research with impact, as well as recently on Science.lu in German and French.

 Dr Murdock's book Multiculturalism, Identity and Difference. Experiences of Culture Contact was published in the Palgrave Politics of Identity and Citizenship Series in 2016.
