About the authors

Łukasz Pakuła is affiliated with the Faculty of English at Adam Mickiewicz University, Poland. His research interests include language, gender, and sexuality, identities in educational settings, critical (meta)lexicography and identity construction in reference works (e.g. dictionaries), as well as Corpus Linguistics working in tandem with Critical Discourse Analysis. Recently, his research focus has been on exploring neo-right discourses concerning the so-called “ideology of gender” and “the LGBT ideology”.

Reviews

“This is a breath of fresh air – a collection of scholars from nine different countries who come together here to focus on sexuality in language education through a linguistic lens. Łukasz Pakuła has done a remarkable job of understanding where the field has been, who has contributed to it, and where it needs to go now. The English language classroom has never been explored like this before. The particular grappling with ‘representations, constructions and negotiations’ gives the language teaching world what it needs: a reckoning with queer identities and the places of intersection with a heteronormative world.”  – Allyson Jule, Trinity Western University, Canada

“These papers explore the damages created by curriculum, instruction and educational policy when classroom practice endorses heteronormative, social and linguistic privilege. The papers specify changes in policy and practice that will bring endorsements of gender and sexual diversity(s) into the classroom.  This is queer linguistics oriented around social action and social justice. The synergy stemming from the perspectives and methodologies in this collection offers a comprehensive picture of the diversity of research in this emerging field.” – William L. Leap, Florida Atlantic University, USA
