Abstract

Using an interdisciplinary framework, drawn from educational philosophy, cultural studies, intercultural studies and language pedagogy, this book discusses the many tensions and currents in contemporary language teaching. An alternative pedagogy, that of a 'cultuurtekst' perspective which engages learners at complex linguistic and cultural levels, is put forward. In discussing a case study in which this perspective is tried out the book develops the argument for embracing various critical perspectives through the personal engagement of students.
