Conceptualizing and Confronting Inequity: Approaches within and New Directions for the "NNEST Movement"
Rudolph, Nathanael; Selvi, Ali Fuad; Yazan, Bedrettin
Critical Inquiry in Language Studies, v12 n1 p27-50 2015
This article examines inequity as conceptualized and approached within and through the non-native English speakers in TESOL (NNEST) "movement." The authors unpack critical approaches to the NNEST experience, conceptualized via binaries (NS/NNS; NEST/NNEST). The authors then explore postmodern and poststructural approaches to identity and inequity that problematize dichotomies, and the implications such approaches might have for addressing inequity and cultivating inclusivity in English language teaching.
