Critical Applied Linguistics | A Critical Introduction | Taylor & Francis Group
This accessible guide and introduction to critical applied linguistics provides a clear overview, highlighting problems, debates, and competing views in language education, literacy, discourse analysis, language in the workplace, translation and other lan. Applied linguistics. Now, before I go further, I should state why this book occasionally rubbed me the wrong way.

He certainly lives his advice for the CALx research to be a restive problematizer, as it often seems very little previous work met his standards or his vision for CALx. To question what it does, what it can do, and how dominant discourses in the discipline have maintained the social status quo. There is, of course, a great deal that I liked about the book. For example, I agree with his assertion that part of what CALx must account for is how we are awash in power relations at a variety of levels programmatic, institutional, disciplinary, national, etc.
Even my work in queer applied linguistics needs to better account for this.
Critical Applied Linguistics (CALx)
I found that when Pennycook was clearly and directly outlining the mission and viewpoints of CALx he was in rare form and it was brilliant work. In this book, Pennycook also introduced the notion of hope to the field, even if it was in a passing way.

He discusses multiple times the critiques leveled against CALx. It becomes paralyzed in an endless circle of hopelessness and self- criticism.
Critical Applied Linguistics
Pennycook states that CALx must find a way to infuse hope into its work. Hope for marginalized language learners. And, hope for practitioners and junior scholars that their work can find a space to flourish and can potentially make a difference.
In social work, it is seen as one of the goals of the practitioner to give hope to those who have lost it, often by speaking truth to power and advocating for those that cannot, or are not yet ready, to be self-advocates. Here, I must echo Pennycook in pointing out that if we are going to import the hope construct, we must do so in a way that acknowledges the different levels of power and discourses in which a person operates.
