Race, culture, and identities in second language education; exploring critically engaged practice.

Ed. by Ryuko Kubota and Angel Lin.



322 pages




Twenty-four international academics contribute 16 chapters examining issues of race and their intersection with culture and identities in second language education. Each chapter presents data-based research or conceptual inquiry and provides both theoretical and practical insights into second language teaching and learning. Coverage includes construction of racialized identities for culturally and linguistically diverse students in primary, secondary, and higher education; manifestations of racism in relation to culturally and linguistically diverse students; ESL/EFL teachers' views of race, racism, culture, and language; and critically engaged pedagogies that affirm the racial heritage of students and challenge racism in language learning and teaching. For undergraduate and graduate students and teacher educators in second language education, applied linguistics, intercultural communication, and related fields, and researchers interested in issues of race in language, culture, and identities.
