Edited By Anita Auer, Daniel Schreier, and Richard J. Watts
This book "challenges the assumption that there is only one 'legitimate' and homogenous form of English or of any other language" and "supports the view of different/alternative histories of the English language and will appeal to readers who are skeptical of 'standard' language ideology."
Languages for Intercultural Communication and Education
This book presents a new view of what it means to teach language and culture in a globalised world characterised by transnational flows of people, commodities and ideas. It contains a critical analysis of the national tradition of culture teaching as an aspect of foreign language teaching and proposes a transnational framework for language and culture pedagogy, aiming at the education of world citizens.
