Daniel Soukup: Dan Disney (ed.): Exploring Second Language Creative Writing. Beyond Babel

On the recently released volume 2 of ‘Scriptum’ magazine, our Czech colleague Daniel Soukup performs a thoughtful critic of Dan Disney’s book ‘Exploring Second Language Creative Writing. Beyond Babel’ (John Benjamins, 2014), a compilation of seven essays reflecting on the new paradigm of “bilinguals’ creativity” in various institutional and cultural settings. “Thanks to the unity of approach —Soukup points out—, soundness of theoretical foundations, wealth of topics covered and sharpness of observation, ‘Exploring Second Language Creative Writing’ provides a significant contribution to both research and teaching practice”
