Crossing boundaries is a key issue in EFL teaching and Postcolonial Studies. It is an objective not only for the foreign language classroom that is facing increasingly global influences in terms of more heterogeneous societies, but also with a view to the growing heterogeneity in the literature, media and materials used in teaching and research. Because the intersections between Postcolonial Studies and TEFL are not only manifold but also highly significant, this volume brings together papers that explore, perform and theorize various kinds of crossovers, be they disciplinary, thematic or intermedial ones.
