Abstract:

This book offers a truly interdisciplinary perspective on key socio-cultural 
aspects of second language learning. Building on Bakhtin's philosophy of 
language and the self, it examines the complex intersections among gender, 
culture, and agency in the everyday discursive practices of immigrants. 
Bakhtin's dialogic framework still remains on the periphery of second 
language acquisition research. The book embraces not only Bakhtin's well-
known notion of "dialogue" but also his core concepts of 
"responsibility" and "ethics" in the analysis of immigrants' 
narrative samples. The significance of narratives is underscored throughout 
the book, and a dialogic, discourse-centered approach to narrative as a genre 
is suggested. 

"Authoring the Dialogical Self" targets a range of disciplines. Scholars in 
applied linguistics, narrative studies, cultural psychology, and communication 
studies will find the discussed concepts relevant. The rich data samples and 
detailed analysis make the book appropriate for graduate courses in TESOL, 
language and identity, or language and gender.
