Hamamra, Bilal Tawfiq – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2018
In addition to the methodology of new historicism, this article deploys feminism, performance studies and presentism to discuss the effects of the masculine practice of enforced marriage and turning a deaf ear to the female voice in Thomas Middleton's "Women Beware Women" and contemporary Palestine.

Obano, Nisha – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2018
This essay emerges from my position as a new trainee teacher, entering my first school, a school as unique and also as typical as any. What struck me was the complexity of the school's culture (and counter-cultures). Language was revealed as a site of resistance, a clash between staff and pupils at the point of instruction; a reluctance to read or…

It explores how the boys' writing within them was shaped and constructed, for what audience and for…

Basso Ricci, Gabrielle – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2018
Using autobiographical experiences as a framework for inquiry, this article sets out to question the often unexamined assumptions that surround the definition of 'proficiency' in second/foreign languages. In so doing, it opens up possibilities of inquiry into the power-laden relationships between speaker agency, cultural belonging and…

Mirhosseini, Seyyed-Abdolhamid; Badri, Narges – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2018
While English is embraced worldwide as a global means of communication, its teaching and learning is a contested arena of contacts between the so-called English native-speaker culture and local learner cultures. In this study, we investigate Iranian university students' viewpoints on the necessity and justifications for learning English and their…

Brady, Monica – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2018
Michael Young's notion of powerful knowledge is attractive to many: to teachers wishing the best for disadvantaged students, to neoliberal governments that continually stress the need for teachers and students to improve their performance. This essay takes issue with this understanding of education. Firstly, it shows how classrooms are mediated by…

Abshir, Fatima – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2018
As humans, we all experience the fundamental need to belong. Often, this sense of belonging is inherited and nurtured by our families and their histories, the languages we speak and the cultures we adhere to; and it is in our experiences and engagement with these aspects of ourselves that our identities are formed, contested, negotiated and…

Dyches, Jeanne; Sams, Brandon L. – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2018
English teaching that satisfies curricula standards has often been siloed from instruction that advances the goals of social justice. Exasperated teachers may feel they can either meet the day-to-day demands of their profession or teach to dismantle social inequities, but not achieve the aims of both approaches. In this reflective practitioner…
