Contributed by authors who write from various disciplinary perspectives, the essays in this book clarify the learning theories of Mikhail Bakhtin and address the application of his concepts to contemporary issues. In addition, the authors are joined by other scholars in a Bakhtinian dialogue. Together, they address questions that readers may have about Bakhtinian theory and its application to everyday teaching practices.
