Allard, Elaine C.; Apt, Sarah; Sacks, Isabel – International Multilingual Research Journal, 2019
This study explores language policies in "almost-bilingual" classrooms, in which most but not all students share a home language. Teachers who are bilingual face a dilemma in these settings.

Sultana, Shaila; Dovchin, Sender – International Multilingual Research Journal, 2017
Based on virtual conversations drawn from two separate intensive ethnographic studies in Bangladesh and Mongolia, we show that popular cultural texts play a significant role in young adults' heteroglossic language practices. On the one hand, they borrow voices from cultural texts and cross the boundaries of language, i.e., codes, modes, and…

Kibler, Amanda – International Multilingual Research Journal, 2017
Reflecting on contributions to this special issue along with my own research, I suggest ways in which sociocultural understandings of peer interactions in multilingual contexts are and should be evolving to encompass the increasingly complex settings that research has come to document. I argue that in order to realize the potential of research in…

Martin-Beltrán, Melinda; Daniel, Shannon; Peercy, Megan; Silverman, Rebecca – International Multilingual Research Journal, 2017
