Space, Place and Autonomy in Language Learning Hardback
Edited by Garold (Okayama University, Japan) Murray, Terry (University of Sheffield, United Kingdom) Lamb
Part of the Routledge Research in Language Education series
This book explores theories of space and place in relation to autonomy in language learning.
Encompassing a wide range of linguistically and culturally diverse learning contexts, this edited collection brings together research papers from academics working in fourteen countries.
In their studies, these researchers examine physical, virtual and metaphorical learning spaces from a wide range of theoretical and interdisciplinary perspectives (semiotic, ecological, complexity, human geography, linguistic landscapes, mediated discourse analysis, sociocultural, constructivist and social constructivist) and methodological approaches.
The book traces its origins to the first-ever symposium on space, place and autonomy, which was held at the International Association of Applied Linguistics (AILA) 2014 World Congress in Brisbane.
The final chapter, which presents a thematic analysis of the papers in this volume, discusses the implications for theory development, further enquiry, and pedagogical practice.
