Title: ±Voice: Processes of Discovery in PraXis 
Author: Lee, Emily
Date: 2008
Abstract: While it may be unusual for a research piece in second language studies to begin with pieces of a narrative, in this autoethnographic study, the author seeks to show her experiences as an immigrant child and, throughout my life, making sense of her immigrant and hybrid identities, navigating the worlds of language teaching and learning. Specifically, this study illustrates the points of connection between her teaching practice, coursework, reflections, and discussions with peers in her master’s program. The author also shows that the locus of coherence, or praxis, still remains largely within the individual. Furthermore, the author discusses how she was able to discover the bigger picture of language professional education, rather than language teacher education.
