Topic: Constructing and Approaching Native Speakerism in Glocalized ELT


In this session, the speaker will present the idea that native speakerism is constructed glocally, in the interplay of localized and globalized discourses identity. This native speakerism seeks to dictate who learners and users of English might be or become in a given context. In turn, the discourses of native speakerism attempt to define the roles teachers (whether "native" or "non-native") can and/or should play in a given context, effectively creating and eliminating space for different individuals. With such in mind, the speaker will open discussion related to how native speakerism might be addressed in the workplace and via professional activities.
