Dr Brian Morgan
Department of Languages, Literatures and Linguistics,
York University, Toronto, Canada
Date of visitorship: 3-11 February 2007
Dr Brian Morgan has been involved in English Language Teaching for almost twenty years. One of his earliest and most memorable teaching experiences was at the Sichuan Institute for Foreign Languages in Chongqing, the People's Republic of China (1988-89), where he taught English for Academic Purposes (EAP) to Chinese scholars preparing to go abroad for further studies.
At York University, where he has been full time faculty member since 2001, Dr Morgan teaches a 9-credit EAP course whose content explores issues of culture, gender, and race within the development of Canada's multicultural and bilingual identity. He also teaches in the Masters in Theoretical and Applied Linguistics Program and the TESOL certificate program.
For the past fifteen years, Dr Morgan's publication has appeared in journals such as the Annual Review of Applied Linguistics, TESOL Quarterly, TESOL Journal, Canadian Modern Language Review, International Journal of Bilingual Education and Bilingualism, and the Journal of Language, Identity, and Education. Along with Vaidehi Ramanathan, Dr Morgan is the co-editor of the forthcoming 2007 TESOL Quarterly Special Issue on Language Policy Enactments in TESOL.
Dr Morgan's current research interests are focused in the following areas: theory and practice in critical applied linguistics, particularly for EAP settings; critical media literacies/ multiliteracies in ELT; language, culture, and identity; community-based adult ESL, and language teacher education.
