Wescott, Stephanie – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2021
Post-truthism entered mainstream consciousness after being named "Oxford Dictionary's" word of the year in 2016, denoting a turn in the Western relationship with truth as a certain and indisputable object.

Ali, Zahra – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2021
One of the consequences of globalisation in recent years has been the unprecedented spread of English as the world's lingua franca. This has particular resonance in postcolonial countries, such as Pakistan and Australia, whose histories have been strongly shaped by English colonisers in contrasting ways. Written from the perspective of someone who…

Petrosky, Anthony; Mihalakis, Vivian – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2021

Canale, Germán; Furtado, Victoria – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2021
Long-ingrained views of EFL teaching foreground grammar and language skills as the main goal of learning, backgrounding how the language classroom and materials contribute to (social) knowledge construction. Along these lines, EFL textbooks tend to avoid explicitly -and critically- addressing gender identities: they naturalise and reinforce binary…

Shann, Steve; Macken-Horarik, Mary; Edwards, CeCe – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2021
What do we see when we observe an excellent English lesson? What's going on in the room? Perhaps what stands out is a collaborative making of meanings inspired by stimulating texts. Perhaps what's most important is an ever-deepening knowledge about, and facility with, the many ways that language works. Maybe what we're seeing is a carefully…

Nevin, Christine – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2021
This essay draws from the experience of observing writing practices in English lessons from 2010-2019, to suggest that the influence of education policy during this phase prioritises preparation for examination questions above the imperatives of learner creativity or volition. Through discussion of ways in which the 'high stakes' examination…

Doecke, Brenton – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2021
This autobiographical essay explores the significance that Marxist literary theory has had for me as an English educator.
