Social Justice in English Language Teaching
This inspiring and diverse collection of voices from the field in ESL and EFL contexts personalizes the issues TESOL educators face and serves as a resource for those wanting to address social injustices in their individual TESOL contexts. Each chapter in this ground-breaking volume represents one of two realities: that English language learners are often on the margins of society, and that those of us who teach them must work to advocate for their needs. This book will help educators identify the needs of other students or the areas of privilege represented in the ELT world, where more advocacy work is needed. Key areas addressed are Social Justice and English Language Teaching: Setting the Stage; Peacebuilding and English Language Teaching; Positioning For Advocacy; Language Rights, Privilege, and Race; Gender and Sexual Orientation Justice; Working Across Borders/Advocating For Students; and Classroom Practices.

This proceedings book captures a wide range of timely themes for readers to be able to foresee the digital era's impact on English teaching in non-English speaking countries. English used in the global environment, the frequent mobile communication, and the use of AI-based translators are bringing about dramatic changes in our English language learning and teaching. Who can provide us the wisdom to know what to do? Those scholars going through these complex environmental changes! A collection of puzzle pieces may bring us a better contour for the future than a perfectly edited book. It's indeed a pleasure reading these insightful pieces to gain wisdom for the future of ELT practices in global contexts.
