Lucy Cooker

Although Applied Linguistics research now emphasizes the social over the individual, qualitative research approaches often foreground the individual. Identity, agency and autonomy have also emerged as important, but contested, constructs in sociocultural approaches to research This book addresses the current status of the ‘Applied Linguistic individual’ through contributions, from Asia, Australasia, Europe, and North and South America, that discuss the role of the individual in research from perspectives including Sociocultural Theory, Situated Learning, Imagined Communities, Complexity Theory, and Autonomy Theory.
