About this book

This edited book provides professionals in the field of English Language Teaching (ELT) with a situated and culturally-responsive account of diversity and inclusion in English language education, from primary to higher education and in a wide range of settings. The volume focuses on three overlapping areas: interculturality, special education needs, and gender. The chapters in each section seek to help readers reflect on the opportunities and challenges of diversity as a step towards inclusive practices, and raise awareness of critical topics across the curriculum and beyond by engaging in wider social issues. This book will be of interest to language teachers and teacher trainers, as well as scholars working in applied linguistics, higher education, intercultural studies, and related fields.

Reviews

“Diversity has been a topic of great interest in education, but little has been written about diversity in English Language Teaching. This book addresses this need and brings together a group of major international scholars who have done a brilliant job in each chapter providing situated accounts, activities, reflections, and awareness-raising initiatives around diversity and inclusion. Highly recommended resource!” (Luciana C. de Oliveira, Virginia Commonwealth University, USA) 

“With contributions from across four continents, this volume is a truly international collection of research-informed chapters which illustrate, reflect on, and problematise the crystallisation of diversity in the English language classroom. The chapters are all grounded in context-responsive pedagogies and unearth important considerations around interculturality, gender and special education needs, which are often undermined by unconscious biases.” (Harry Kuchah Kuchah, University of Leeds, UK)
