About this book

This volume stands as a demonstration of resistance to 'the known' (i.e. the tyranny of the expected) through individual and collective counter-conduct within the domain of language education. Supported by data drawn from various local and national contexts, the book challenges the pedagogies, practices, and policies of 'the institution'.
