Shannon Giroir, a MCPER postdoctoral fellow, will lead a brown bag presentation titled "ESL Learning, Social Participation, and Negotiating the 'Periphery': Saudi ESL Students in U.S. Higher Education Contexts" from noon to 1 p.m. on March 25 in the Pittenger Room (SZB 418). Giroir will report on a study of how a group of adult ESL learners negotiated their positionality vis-à-vis the second-language community. The presentation will focus specifically on two Saudi Arabian men and how they negotiated social participation outside of the ESL classroom.
