Heidenfeldt, William – L2 Journal, 2020

Fichtner, Friederike – L2 Journal, 2020
From early in their learning experience, foreign language (FL) learners at American universities explore socio-cultural connotations that, it is argued, are signified by FL words. Textbook authors and teachers follow an implicit canon of difference, a list of iconic words that over time--and without the benefit of empirical evidence--have come to…

Yang, Shizhou – L2 Journal, 2020
Although critical pedagogy has been widely discussed in the Americas, little research has been done to recontextualize it in foreign language (FL) writing and explore its actual impact on the learners' sense of self. Hence, I consider in this article the possibility of transforming FL writing education by using a reconceptualized critical…

Caldas, Blanca – L2 Journal, 2020
Freire (2005) encourages people to take "critical ownership of the formation of ourselves" (p. 44) in order to be able to act upon the world in what he (1993) calls "praxis." This praxis consists of the development of critical consciousness leading to transformative action. Critical consciousness and praxis should be conceived…

Mitsikopoulou, Bessie – L2 Journal, 2020
This paper focuses on critical pedagogy and EFL teacher education and it argues that it would be unrealistic to expect students who have been educated through traditional university curricula (aiming to deliver content through a 'banking model') to become critical foreign language teachers and educators. The education of future teachers requires…

The article includes ideas about research regarding: (1) "pathways to success in…

Lotherington, Heather – L2 Journal, 2018
This paper repositions McLuhan's (1964/1965) extension theory of technology in the context of "mobile (-assisted) language learning" (MALL), and explores whether and how the medium (i.e., the mobile device) impacts the message (i.e., the target language) and the means by which it is taught in MALL. A survey of recommended commercial MALL…

Menke, Mandy R. – L2 Journal, 2018

In light of the high percentage of courses they teach, non-tenure-track…
