Title: Critical Pedagogies and Language Learning
Author: Eva Núñez Méndez
Linguistic Field: Sociolinguistics
Abstract: Language is not simply communication; rather, it is a practice that constructs the ways language learners understand themselves and their social surroundings. This collection assembles the work of 22 scholars interested in critical perspectives on language education in different sites of practice. They investigate how social relationships and issues of power are centrally important in developing critical language education pedagogies.
