Abstract: This study explores Indonesian English lecturers' perceptions about English in relation with their identities. Individual interviews were carried out with Indonesian English lecturers at universities in Yogyakarta. The data collected were analysed qualitatively. The results reveal that the lecturers view English as mainly a tool for knowledge advancement and global communication. English is also believed to be enriching the participants' identity as Indonesians. Even though English is seen as a form of imposition, its positive aspects are believed to outstrip its negatives. There is, however, a perceived tension between English and Indonesian, the national language that represents their identities as Indonesians
