Profile

Nathanael Rudolph is an associate professor of TESOL/applied linguistics at Mukogawa Women's University in Nishinomiya, Japan. In the classroom, Nathanael seeks to equip his students to interact with individuals from diverse backgrounds, in and across linguistic, sociocultural, political, economic, religious and national borders. Nathanael’s research interests and professional activities relate to teacher and learner identity, professional (in)equity in the discursive field of ELT, and teacher education and classroom practice that problematizes essentialized and idealized constructions of Self-Other, including (non)nativeness in English, and Japaneseness-Otherness.
