Counter-Narratives in Language Education Research (UK but Online)

Events

Counter-Narratives in Language Education Research, Center for Language Education Research, University of Leeds, Leeds, UK (Online), May 18, 2021, 2-4 BST.

Counter-Narratives in Language Education Research will highlight presentations by Dr. Nelson Flores, University of Pennsylvania and Dr. Giovanna Fassetta, University of Glasgow, with contributions from University of Leeds colleagues: Dr. Daniel Fobi, Dr. Kate Spowage and Rumana Hossain.

The speakers’ presentations in diverse areas of language education inquiry will lead to a more general reflection. Among the topics to be discussed:

  • What are the dominant narratives of language (and) education in our respective contexts and domains of inquiry?
  • Which/whose stories are not included in them and why do they need to be
  • How does our research need to change to make space for the multiple, complex and often competing counter-narratives?
