(Re-)locating TESOL in an age of empire

Julian Edge (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportEdited Book/AnthologyResearch

Abstract

Are TESOL professionals now fairly seen as agents of a new English-speaking empire? Or, if they wish to distance themselves from this role, are there ways of working and living that would make this differentiation clear? An international group of authors put forward their differing analyses of the contexts with which they are most familiar, along with proposals for the development of TESOL in a world where military invasion and occupation have been added to the previous mix of globalized economic hegemony and cultural influence exercised by the USA and its allies.
