Feminist Readings in Middle English Literature: The Wife of Bath and All Her Sect
Product Description:
In recent years there has been a sustained growth of interest in medieval literary culture, and the range of critical activity within this field has expanded greatly, largely in response to the challenges of modern critical theory. Some of the most stimulating work has tackled the subject of sexual difference and gender construction in medieval texts.
Reponding to this tendency, editors Rudy Evans and Lesley Johnson have gathered a singularly effective and impressive collection of essays ranging from writing on such figures as Margery Kempe, Christine de Pisan, Langland, and Chaucer. As one of the first texts ever published on theories of sexual difference and medieval literature, Evans and Johnson contribute incisively both to the debate and discussion of sexual difference in pre-modern literature.

Скачать Non-Native Language Teachers: Perceptions, Challenges and Contributions to the Profession (Educational Linguistics) бесплатно

Non-Native Language Teachers: Perceptions, Challenges and Contributions to the Profession (Educational Linguistics)
Non-native language teachers have often been viewed as an unavoidable fate of the profession, rather than an asset worth exploring and investigating. Now that non-natives are increasingly found teaching languages, and particularly English, both in ESL and EFL contexts, the identification of their specific contributions and their main strengths has become more relevant than ever.
As a result, there has recently been a surge of interest in the role of non-native teachers but little empirical research has been published so far. This volume is particularly rich in providing different approaches to the study of non-native teachers: NNS teachers as seen by students, teachers, graduate supervisors, and by themselves. It also contributes little explored perspectives, like classroom discourse analysis, or a social-psychological framework to discuss conceptions of NNS teachers.
