Abstract:

This book offers a truly interdisciplinary perspective on key socio-culturalaspects of second language learning. Building on Bakhtin's philosophy oflanguage and the self, it examines the complex intersections among gender,culture, and agency in the everyday discursive practices of immigrants.Bakhtin's dialogic framework still remains on the periphery of secondlanguage acquisition research. The book embraces not only Bakhtin's well-known notion of "dialogue" but also his core concepts of"responsibility" and "ethics" in the analysis of immigrants'narrative samples. The significance of narratives is underscored throughoutthe book, and a dialogic, discourse-centered approach to narrative as a genreis suggested.

"Authoring the Dialogical Self" targets a range of disciplines. Scholars inapplied linguistics, narrative studies, cultural psychology, and communicationstudies will find the discussed concepts relevant. The rich data samples anddetailed analysis make the book appropriate for graduate courses in TESOL,language and identity, or language and gender.
