Title: Developing Critical Languaculture Pedagogies in Higher Education
Subtitle: Theory and Practice
Written By: AdrianaRaquelDíaz
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781783090341
Series Title: Languages for Intercultural Communication and Education
Description:

Despite widespread agreement about the need to develop interculturally competent graduates, there is a lack of agreement about how this goal may be achieved in practice. This is significant as universities around the world, particularly in English-speaking countries, have espoused an interculturally-aware vision for their future graduates and turned to language education, as an inherently intercultural activity, to expose students to a world which is linguistically and culturally different from their own. This book focuses on narrowing the gap between the often conflicting theoretical and practical imperatives faced by language teachers in an internationalised higher education context. It does so by providing comprehensive conceptual discussions of emerging critical intercultural language pedagogies as well as empirical accounts and case studies from the frontline.
