'Post-Truth' and Pedagogy in English Language Education

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The power of language to shape, sway, and dominate everyday thoughts through emotional and ideological appeals is not a new concept. The recent upswing in use of the term “post-truth”, however, has brought the notion of power, generally, and linguistic power, more specifically, to a new height of societal consciousness and has spurred wide-spread (re-)action at levels unprecedented. If BC TEAL is our name, and language is our game, what, then, are our roles and responsibilities in a time of “post-truth”, and what are the implications for critically engaged praxis in our EAL classrooms?
