Özet

Research on language and identity have generally been conducted in predominantly English-language native speaker settings, and results have revealed the language-learning process as a complex interplay of many variables in which social roles, relationships, and identities are constantly reconstituted. This study investigates how prospective teachers of English approach the issues of foreign-language learning and changing identities in an Islamic context, namely Turkey.
