Translingual Dispositions

The Affordances of Globalized Approaches to the Teaching of Writing

edited by Alanna Frost, Julia E. Kiernan & Suzanna Blum Malley

International Exchanges on the Study of Writing Series
Copublished with CSU Open Press


Working within the framework of translanguaging, the contributors to this collection offer nuanced explorations of how translingual dispositions can be facilitated in English-medium postsecondary writing programs and classrooms. The authors and editors comprise a wide array of writing scholars from diverse teaching and learning contexts with a corresponding array of institutional, disciplinary, and pedagogical expectations and pressures. The work shared in this collection offers readers cases of translingual dispositions that consider the personal, pedagogical, and institutional challenges associated with the adoption of a translingual disposition and interrogate academic translingual practices in U.S. and international English-medium settings.
