Title

SECOND LANGUAGE LEARNING AND IDENTITY: CRACKING METAPHORS IN IDEOLOGICAL AND POETIC DISCOURSE IN THE THIRD SPACE

Subject

Language learning
Second language learning

Description

This is a research study of second language learning and identity construction. Using autoethnography, I draw on my experiences learning English as a second language to
understand what it means for a Japanese woman to be an English language learner. I am interested in understanding our everyday lives, our languages, our metaphors, and known and unknown selves as they take shape and transform. This research comes from a woman's heart, looking back on my past and questioning patriarchal power structures in both Japanese and Canadian cultures.
