About this book

This book employs the realm of English Language Teaching (ELT) as a discursive point of departure to explore how individuals, groups, entities and institutions apprehend, embrace, deal with, manipulate, problematize and resist glocal flows of people, ideas, information, goods, and technology. It apprehends and attends to tensions arising from the fluidly local-global construction and negotiation of borders of identity and interaction within a diverse array of contexts and English education therein. These tensions, whether conceptual or pedagogical, may arise in and through governmental and institutional policymaking, teacher training, or curriculum and materials development, and in the learning experience both within and beyond the classroom, as teachers and students engage with course content and each other.

About the authors

Ali Fuad Selvi (PhD, University of Maryland) is an Assistant Professor of TESOL and Applied Linguistics and the Chair of the Teaching English as a Foreign Language program at Middle East Technical University, Northern Cyprus Campus. His research interests include the sociolinguistics of English as an international language and its implications for language learning, teaching, teacher education and language policy/planning; issues related to (in)equity, marginalization, discrimination and professionalism in TESOL; and second language teacher education. He is the Past Chair of the NNEST Interest Section in TESOL International Association. Nathanael Rudolph (PhD, University of Maryland) is an Associate Professor of TESOL and Applied Linguistics in the Department of English at Mukogawa Women’s University, in Nishinomiya, Hyogo, Japan. In and through his research and teaching, Nathanael advocates contextualized education that critically and practically accounts for and celebrates hybridity and diversity, in terms of identity and interaction. His specific interests relate to postmodern and poststructural approaches to teacher and learner identity, (in)equity in the field of ELT, and approaches to teacher education and classroom practice that challenge essentialized and idealized (non)nativeness.
