    Summary:This article examines inequity as conceptualized and approached within and through the non-native English speakers in TESOL (NNEST) “movement.”1 The authors unpack critical approaches to the NNEST experience, conceptualized via binaries (NS/NNS NEST/NNEST). The authors then explore postmodern and poststructural approaches to identity and inequity that problematize dichotomies, and the implications such approaches might have for addressing inequity and cultivating inclusivity in English language teaching.

    Summary:This co-constructed narrative explores one "non-native" English-speaking graduate student, scholar, and teacher trainer's experience challenging the native speaker construct as a regime of truth in the field of English language teaching. Though marginalized academically and professionally by its discourses, Halil's storyline is nevertheless one of an individual actively and methodically creating space for agency and advocacy in the classroom, in his university and in his professional activities as a member of the English language teaching and research community. © 2013 Copyright Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
