Title: Language Teacher Identities
Subtitle: Co-constructing Discourse and Community
Written By: Matthew Clarke
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847690814
Series Title: New Perspectives on Language and Education
Description:

Set in the rapidly changing world of the contemporary United Arab Emirates
and bringing together detailed linguistic analysis with cutting edge social
theory, this book explores the development of the first cohort of students
to complete a new Bachelor of Education in English language teaching,
theorizing the students' learning to teach in terms of the discursive
construction of a teaching identity within an evolving community of
practice. Both a study of the influence of issues such as gender and
nationalism in language teacher education in the Middle East, as well as of
the power of discourse and community in shaping identity, this book will be
of relevance to anyone working in teacher education as well as to those
with an interest in theorizations of discourse and identity.
