Race, Empire, and TESOL

This course will introduce students to major themes situated at the intersection of race, empire, and TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages), through an investigation of the works of established scholars and contemporary theorists in applied linguistics and TESOL. Using race and empire as our primary analytics, we will interrogate the ways in which the teaching of English overlaps with racial formations, colonization, globalization, language minority rights, representations of English as a lingua franca, evangelism, the supremacy of native speaker identity, and constructions of multiculturalism.
