CFP: Thinking Globally, Teaching Locally (CCCC 2008)

Teaching a first-year composition course themed on issues of
globalization can be an uphill battle, especially if that course is
taught in one of this country's many rural colleges and universities.
While a rapidly contracting globe makes certain economic, environmental,
and cultural issues imperative, colleges in our nation's hinterlands
often lack significant economic and ethnic diversity. Even well-prepared
students can remain insulated in very local contexts, environments that
can facilitate hasty generalizations or a disempowering relativism.
