Comments on Sarah Benesch's "ESL, Ideology, and the Politics of Pragmatism."
Allison, Desmond; Benesch, Sarah
TESOL Quarterly, v28 n3 p618-24 Fall 1994
Argues that Benesch's charge that pragmatism in English for academic purposes (EAP) indicates an accommodationist ideology and an endorsement of current power relations in academia and society is ideologically motivated. Benesch responds by arguing that those who ignore questions of power participate in maintaining the low status of EAP students and faculty in higher education. (MDM)
