The Role of Language in Including LGBTQIA+ Identities in the Foreign Language Classroom
João Nemi Neto (Columbia University, USA)
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-6684-8243-8.ch006
Abstract
For this chapter, the author intends to draw his ideas from feminist pedagogy (hooks, Korol, among others) and queer pedagogy (Britzman, Nemi Neto) in order to present a possible way for teachers to understand the potential of acknowledging students' identities in the classroom. The language classroom is the place of testimony and voice. For one to learn a foreign language, it is important to rely on their voice as an important tool of recognition and identity.

A Teacher Education Model for LGBTIQ Diversity at the University: How to Improve What Needs to Be Trained?
This refers to the generalized idea that exists in individuals and institutions that heterosexuality is the only “normal” or “correct” sexual orientation, and that any other form of sexuality is inferior or abnormal. This mentality leads to the invisibility and discrimination of other sexual orientations, as can be seen in situations where a married woman is asked about her husband without considering the possibility that she has a same-sex partner. In addition, heteronormativity leads us to assume that only those men who behave in a masculine way and women who behave in a feminine way are heterosexual.
