Global South Perspectives on TESOL is an international, multidisciplinary series focusing on studies that examine issues of TESOL through recovering the rich histories, theories, and practices of multilingual education developed in traditionally non-English-dominant contexts and communities. Purposefully situated beyond monolingual ideologies, legacies and research theories and practices, this series solicits new studies that critically engage with epistemologies, theories and practices of TESOL, and offer a transformative change that allows the scholarship of TESOL to advance.
The series envisions decolonizing research theories and practices in TESOL and thinking outside the dominance of Western/Northern models as departure points to advancing the field of TESOL. This series will also be a venue for scholars in the Global South to collaborate with Global North scholars in order to promote global harmony in TESOL. It features scholarly works that examine issues surrounding TESOL from new angles, including local theories, pedagogies and practices, and works of novice and under-represented authors.
The series welcomes single-authored or multi-authored monographs and edited volumes on areas including epistemological racism in TESOL; social justice in TESOL; issues of race, gender, and class in TESOL; theories of change in TESOL; translanguaging in TESOL classrooms; Southern theories of TESOL; post-human thoughts in TESOL and decolonizing research theories and practices in TESOL.
