    Reviews

    This collection of chapters is a timely and important contribution to the growing field of duoethnography. Meticulously researched and compellingly written, it is a must-read for anyone wanting to understand what duoethnography is, how it can be related to reflective practice, and how it can be applied to the classroom.

    This is an important addition to our understanding of how duoethnographies relate to the cultural and discursive contexts of language. The book articulates pedagogical implications of duoethnography for language development and is an expertly crafted collection of voices, narratives, and reflections. It provides an excellent touchstone for a reflective exploration of the values of dialogue and difference.

    Lowe and Lawrence have curated a fabulous collection of duoethnographies. The book is informative, readable, and very useful – for both researchers and teachers. This theoretically and methodologically complex and challenging area of research, reflection and pedagogy is narrated in an accessible, composed style. The book serves as an authoritative and convincing introduction to duoethnography in applied linguistics and ELT.
