An assumption that the technologies, pedagogies, and sociocultural norms associated with CALL are universal has implicitly permeated much of the discipline’s research over the past two decades. The current special issue draws together critical perspectives that problematize the workings of hegemonies, examining their complex effects on language students, teachers, and classrooms in a variety of linguistic and cultural settings, and considering what it means to resist them. This thought-provoking and provocative collection of articles from a multicultural, multilingual group of contributors contrasts voices from the Anglosphere with voices from less well-served territories, ensuring a fruitful dialogue between them.
