Non-Native English Speaking Teachers' Subjectivities and Colombian Language Policies: A Narrative Study
Gómez-Vásquez, Leidy Yisel; Guerrero Nieto, Carmen Helena
PROFILE: Issues in Teachers' Professional Development, v20 n2 p51-64 Jul-Dec 2018
This article reports the results of a study whose purpose was to trace the configuration of professional subjectivities by analyzing the narratives of four Colombian non-native English speaking teachers in the framework of language policies. In this qualitative-narrative study we used written narratives and narrative interviews as instruments to collect data from the participants who work in different universities and schools in Colombia. Their stories were analyzed using short story analysis, and the results allowed us to identify a core category: Re-creating the self: An entangled, changeable and endless process which shows that the subjectivities are influenced by others, teachers go through processes of acceptance or rejection when configuring them, and knowledge and reflection play an important role.
