Call for Book Chapter Proposals: Critical Issues and Frameworks in ELT in Morocco: Interculturality, Neoliberalism and Linguistic Imperialism. Deadline: 5 February 2022.
Chapter proposals are solicited for the planned book Critical Issues and Frameworks in ELT in Morocco: Interculturality, Neoliberalism and Linguistic Imperialism, to be edited by Hamza R’boul (I-COMMUNITAS, Institute for Advanced Social Research, Public University of Navarre) and Mohammed Guamguami (ESEF, Mohammed Premier University, Oujda, Morocco) for publication with Palgrave Macmillan.
The book will draw on three main elements that are representative of the critical debates surrounding the world’s most widespread lingua franca; these elements are interculturality, neoliberalism and linguistic imperialism. This proposed book perceives Morocco as an example of the issues that the Global South has been struggling with. This proposed book aims at examining the potential privileged status of Anglophone perspectives and cultures as well as the possible critical representations in Moroccan ELT that may stymie hegemonic understandings of English. It will investigate attitudes, understandings, pedagogies and practices related to critical issues and frameworks in ELT in Morocco.
