The purpose of the webinar is to (re)introduce members to the NNEST movement and to explore the different theoretical perspectives framing the study of marginalization and privilege in ELT.
We will address topics such as "what is native speakerism?" "how is the term 'native speaker' understood?" "what should I know about how people position themselves and are positioned by others as 'native' or 'nonnative' speakers?" "what new scholarship has emerged in our field?"why is knowing more about native speakerism important for my role as an ELT professional?"
