Menard-Warwick, Julia; Masters, Katherine A.; Orque, Raymond – Journal of Language, Identity, and Education, 2019

Han, Huamei; Varghese, Manka – Journal of Language, Identity, and Education, 2019

Paiz, Joshua M. – Journal of Language, Identity, and Education, 2019
Before the social turn in applied linguistics, English language teaching (ELT) was a presumably monosexual world. One where all its participants were presumed to be straight until, and even if, proven otherwise. The social turn brought with it a small but growing body of queer applied linguistics literature that has led to the troubling of the…

Chang, Yu-jung – Journal of Language, Identity, and Education, 2018
Research on novice ESL/EFL teachers' identity development often characterizes the teaching practicum/internship as a boundary-crossing period in which pre-service teachers move out of the sheltered environment of education to become in-service teachers in real classrooms. Nevertheless, many prospective teachers experience a prolonged pre-service…

Native English speaking language teachers who live and work in various parts of the world often express a desire to learn the language of their host country.
