Description - Critical Applied Linguistics by Alastair Pennycook

Critical applied linguistics is an approach to critical questions in language education, literacy, discourse analysis, language in the workplace, translation and other language-related domains. This text provides an overview, highlighting problems, debates and competing views in different domains. Although it partly reflects the author's own particular views, it also aims to help readers come to their own understanding of the central issues. Covering both critical theory - from postcolonialism to queer theory - and domains of practice, the book is organized around the following themes: the politics of knowledge; language; texts; pedagogy; and difference.
