Description


We live in the age of trans-, an era of pervasive mobility across linguistic, national, disciplinary, and institutional borders of teachers, students, scholars, and institutional programs. The contributors to Toward a Transnational University examine how approaches to postsecondary writing instruction travel and, in the process, transform the transnational and translingual character of universities worldwide. The chapters in this edited collection investigate, in multiple contexts around the world, the challenges, opportunities, and ambiguities that arise when mobility is taken as their foundation. Writing from a wide range of locations—including Bangladesh, Canada, China, Japan, Nepal, Qatar, and the United States—the contributors to Toward a Transnational University examine the friction points by which particular approaches to academic writing and its teaching are translated and interact with local cultures and concerns. Together, they show how institutions of higher education are engaging the mobility and fluidity of academic writing, its teaching, and its learning.
