Language and Subjectivity

Blain, Hayden

The study of language and identity has taken many forms, but Language and Subjectivity presents a rigorous, empirical, and theoretically-informed perspective on how we might investigate the relationship between language and identity. Tim McNamara, a renowned applied linguist in the field of language testing, takes a deep understanding of poststructuralist thought—particularly the theories of Michel Foucault, Jacques Derrida, and Judith Butler—and applies this to established areas of applied linguistics. McNamara carefully interweaves discussions of poststructuralist thinking into discussions of language—including everyday conversation, language learning, and language testing.
