Cho, Seonhee; Yi, Youngjoo – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2019
Despite a growing number of Second Language (L2) researchers working in cross-cultural and cross-linguistic settings, issues related to these uniquely situated researcher identities have only scantily been addressed.
