Abstract:

Description In this first-hand study of the relationship of gender,
ethnicity and the participation of children within an English-language
teaching classroom, Jul� re-assesses Lacan's approach to belonging
with other theoretical approaches to gender and language, making use
of case-study methods. She asks key questions: Are there observable
tendencies in the way that boys and girls receive and use talk in the
classroom? How might such tendencies be constructed or encouraged
within an ESL classroom, where gender and ethnicity intersect in
particular ways?
