Title: ELT, Gender and International Development
Subtitle: Myths of Progress in a Neocolonial World
Written By: Roslyn Appleby
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847693037
Series Title: Critical Language and Literacy Studies
Description:

For believers in the power of English, language as aid can deliver the
promise of a brighter future; but in a neocolonial world of international
development, a gulf exists between belief and reality. Rich with echoes of
an earlier colonial era, this book draws on the candid narratives of white
women teachers, and situates classroom practices within a broad reading of
the West and the Rest. What happens when white Western men and women come
in to rebuild former colonies in Asia? How do English language lessons
translate, or disintegrate, in a radically different world? How is English
teaching linked to ideas of progress? This book presents the paradoxes of
language aid in the twenty-first century in a way that will challenge your
views of English and its power to improve the lives of people in the
developing world.
