9781783091348: Multiple Perspectives on the Self in SLA (Second Language Acquisition)

Instead of viewing different perspectives on the self as competing with each other and considering one perspective on the self as being inherently ‘better' than another, this book takes the view that a fuller, more comprehensive picture of the self in SLA can be gained by examining and combining insights from different perspectives. This original collection of papers thus attempts to provide a thorough overview of the ways in which the self can be conceptualised in SLA contexts. The editors have brought together a diverse range of theoretical perspectives on the self to allow the reader to appreciate the insights that each approach contributes to overall understandings of the self in the domain of second language acquisition and foreign language learning.

About the Author:

Sarah Mercer is Lecturer at the University of Graz, Austria. She has been working in ELT in Europe for over 15 years and currently researches in the area of language learning psychology, with particular interest in aspects of the self. Her recent publications include Towards an Understanding of Language Learner Self-Concept (2011, Springer).Marion Williams was previously Reader at the University of Exeter and is currently Chair of the Academic Board for INSTILL Education. She has 40 years' experience of working at all levels of ELT internationally, is a long-standing member of the ELT Journal editorial board and is a former president of IATEFL.

Review:

Given the centrality of the self to language learning and teaching, anyone and everyone involved in language education should read this book – at least twice.

(Garold Murray, Okayama Universtity, Japan JALT Journal, 37.1, May 2015)
