Vasilopoulos, Gene – Journal of Language, Identity, and Education, 2015
Most research on language and identity has been conducted in contexts in which English is an official language.

To address this potential disparity, this qualitative study examines L2 identity construction…

King, Brian W. – Journal of Language, Identity, and Education, 2008
This study works against heteronormativity, which is prevalent in the second language acquisition field, adding queer perspectives to the growing body of research that questions a narrower, 1-dimensional view of the language learner.
