EAP for Social Justice: Praxis in Action

Welcome to BALEAP’s EAP for Social Justice Special Interest Group website.

We intend for the blogs on this site to demonstrate what is possible, to stimulate dialogue and to inspire further social justice praxis in EAP circles. One of the key functions of this blog is to extend the conversation about social justice in EAP beyond its current narrow focus on Critical Pedagogies and Academic Literacies, and to demonstrate how other areas and initiatives can also come under the social justice umbrella. These might include widening participation, decolonising the curriculum, the affordances of third space working, practitioner pracarity and internationalisation at home, to name but a few.

In the interests of providing a forum for a wide range of voices on this issue, we warmly invite contributions from students, practitioners (on a variety of different contracts), researchers, managers and others involved with, or simply interested in, EAP. We are looking for blog posts which are constructive in nature, pointing to possibilities and potential solutions. If you would like to contribute a blog, please get in touch through our ‘contact us’ section.
