[Extract] In this chapter, we explore how we might hear marginalised voices in the practice discourse. We propose (after Taylor, 2010) that Bakhtin's (1981, 1984) notions of dialogical rhetoric, heteroglossia, polyphony and carnival are helpful in conceptualising how these voices might be heard. We examine these theories and how they might relate to the focus of this chapter and draw on the work of Sparkes (1997, 2007),Cash (2007) and Francis and Hey (2009) for insights into how marginalised voices might be represented, speak out and speak back from within and beyond the margins of the primary discourse. The particular form of this book, using marginalia, allows us to juxtapose marginalised and dominant voices in the text and bring together disparate perspectives, opening up opportunities for a mutual construction of "truth" about professional practice. We considered that, by using Bakhtin's (1984, 1987) theories of language and discourse, this chapter could be presented as a dialogic interaction of multiple voices by writing in and from the margins of the primary discourse.
