This article discusses the notions of time and place in language and language learning theories and research. The traditional views of language and learning as timeless and placeless, fairly fixed systems are criticized and alternative viewpoints brought forward. Time and place are in this article seen in terms of chronotopes (Bakhtin 1981), leading to a view where languages are seen as dynamic, cross-chronotopical resources and learning as the situated appropriation of these resources.
