Research Description

My research interest is in the process through which English continues tospread globally and how ideologies about the English language are reproduced,contested, and transformed in local settings in the outer circle. My currentresearch focuses on the agency of “native English speaking teachers” in theseprocesses and examines the narratives and classroom practices of “NESTs”working in South Korean classrooms.
