While attention has been given to the development of English as an international language (EIL) and EIL methodologies, the question of EIL teacher identity formation has not been addressed to the same degree. In this text, Phan (education, Monash U., Australia) uses both Western and Asian theoretical resources to examine the identity formation of 16 Western-trained Vietnamese teachers of English who have been lecturers or hold adjunct lecturing positions at universities throughout Vietnam. The study explores how the teachers see themselves as professionals and as individuals in relation to their work practices, and reveals the often invisible sides of their identities--the tensions, compromises, negotiations, and contradictions--in their enactment of different roles and selves. It also considers in what ways and aspects native-speakerism applies to these Vietnamese teachers, and shows that they often do not identify themselves with it. No subject index.
