“Moving TESOL beyond the Comfort Zone: Exploring Criticality in TESOL” presents fourteen essays encompassing a wide range of topics of TESOL research and pedagogy from a multitude of perspectives: critical language pedagogy, critical academic literacy, language and technology, EIL/ELF, and multilingualism. The current volume attempts to address different perspectives that inform English language pedagogies situated in different socio-institutional domains.

More crucially, it emphasizes how TESOL research and pedagogy interweave each other. The edited collection also showcases scholarly work and innovative pedagogy around the world and attempts to raise our awareness of what it means to work with multilingual students who are members of increasingly multilingual communities. Thus, the volume can definitely be a guide for teachers, teacher trainers/teacher educators, and researchers in the area of TESOL who are passionate about ‘experimenting’ with different theory and nuanced pedagogy.
