Title: Motivation, Language Identity and the L2 Self
Edited By: Zoltán Dörnyei
Ema Ushioda
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847691279
Series Title: Second Language Acquisition
Description:

Due to its theoretical and educational significance within the language
learning process, the study of L2 motivation has been an important area of
second language acquisition research for several decades. Over the last few
years L2 motivation research has taken an exciting new turn by focusing
increasingly on the language learner’s situated identity and various
self-perceptions. As a result, the concept of L2 motivation is currently in
the process of being radically reconceptualised and re-theorised in the
context of contemporary notions of self and identity. With contributions by
leading European, North American and Asian scholars, this volume brings
together the first comprehensive anthology of key conceptual and empirical
papers that mark this important paradigmatic shift.
