Title: Institutionalized Native-Speakerism: Voices of Dissent and Acts of Resistance
Authors: Rivers, Damian
Abstract: Through the juxtaposition of reflections on professional experience and interviews with colleagues this chapter critiques the policies and practices imposed upon a collective of ‘native-speaker’ English teachers employed at a tertiary institution specializing in foreign language education in Japan. Within this particular site, the critique accentuates the intricate ways lived experience and professional integrity can become tainted by an institutional adherence to a native-speakerist framework, institutional demands which prioritize the financial marketability of foreign language education, and institutional agents of oppression intent on maintaining the iniquities of unaccountable power and privilege. In drawing upon subjective professional experience and through sharing rarely heard minority voices, the data presented in this chapter is not intended “to prove a statistical point through the statements of a representative sample, but to drill down into the workings of a professional discourse in order to critique established positions” (Holliday & Aboshiha, 2009: 674).
