Title: Authoring the Dialogic Self
Subtitle: Gender, agency and language practices
Written By: Gergana Vitanova
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=DS%208
Series Title: Dialogue Studies 8
Description:

This book offers a truly interdisciplinary perspective on key socio-cultural
aspects of second language learning. Building on Bakhtin's philosophy of
language and the self, it examines the complex intersections among gender,
culture, and agency in the everyday discursive practices of immigrants.
Bakhtin's dialogic framework still remains on the periphery of second
language acquisition research. The book embraces not only Bakhtin's well-
known notion of "dialogue" but also his core concepts of
"responsibility" and "ethics" in the analysis of immigrants'
narrative samples. The significance of narratives is underscored throughout
the book, and a dialogic, discourse-centered approach to narrative as a genre
is suggested.

"Authoring the Dialogical Self" targets a range of disciplines. Scholars in
applied linguistics, narrative studies, cultural psychology, and communication
studies will find the discussed concepts relevant. The rich data samples and
detailed analysis make the book appropriate for graduate courses in TESOL,
language and identity, or language and gender.
