Gender diversity and sexuality in English language education: New transnational voices

Dario Luis Banegas (Editor), Navan Govender (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportAnthology

Abstract / Description of output

The aim of this volume is to collect teaching-informed research studies as well as research-informed teaching accounts which explore the teaching of English that engages with (a)gender and (a)sexual diversity. Informed by critical theories, critical literacy, post-structuralism, queer theory, and indigeneity/(de)coloniality, the critical perspectives in this volume consider gender and sexuality as dimensions of human life and aim to promote sexual, gender, emotional and relational well-being together with the construction of cultural horizons and citizenship. This volume also represents a broad range of perspectives and contexts that contribute to the increasing internationalization of higher education and their teacher education provisions. This edited volume provides original research accounts in English language education in diverse settings: Argentina, Bangladesh, Canada, Germany, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Spain, Taiwan, Turkey, the UK, and Uruguay. The chapters in this edited volume are organized into three parts: (1) teaching for gender and sexuality diversity, (2) navigating gender and sexuality diversity, and (3) interrogating resources for gender and sexuality diversity. The sections represent three interdependent areas of inquiry: how educators design pedagogies and curriculums around gender and sexual diversity; how students and teachers navigate issues of gender and sexual diversity in practice; and how issues of gender and sexual diversity emerge in the materials for teaching and learning English. All the chapters lie at the intersection of research-driven practice and practice-driven research.
