The goal of this collection of essays is to transcend the Anglocentric, monolingual bias which has characterized much of the field of language and gender studies by creating a new field combining multilingualism, second language learning (SLL) and gender. The focus of the new field is the relationship between gender, ideology, power, and linguistic practices in bi- and multilingual communities. The 11 contributing authors include scholars from the fields of linguistics, language teaching and acquisition, teacher education, communication, and sociology and equity studies, from the UK, the U.S., Canada, and Australia.
