The intersection of globalization and American style higher education is perhaps most keenly expressed in the necessity of the English language as a connecting force. However, as the lingua franca of many ‘global’ or ‘international’ liberal arts programs, it is more than just a medium of instruction. English operates as the defacto language of globalized higher education, with the assumption that it can be dehistoricized and value-free. Yet faculty teaching in international contexts know that English medium education biases many higher education practices, including text selection, the subordination of other languages, and often an associated second class treatment of non-Western cultures.
GRETA Journal, Revista para Profesores de Inglés (ISSN 1989-7146), is preparing the publication of its 22nd volume. GRETA Journal publishes manuscripts on English Language Teaching Methodology. The objective of the journal is to bridge the gap between the field of Applied Linguistics and class praxis. Other fundamental goals include providing updated information about the latest trends, techniques, materials, and methodologies employed in EFL teaching and to exchange experiences and publications between research teams both on a national and international level.
At its most basic, Writing Across the Curriculum is founded on the core belief summarized by Chris Anson in The WAC Casebook that “writing belongs in all courses in every discipline” (ix). While guided by this central value, WAC programs must also be inherently flexible, individually designed to best meet the needs of their specific students, faculty, programs, and institutions. This diversity of possible approaches gives us the opportunity to share ideas, techniques, and experiences to explore the flexibility and adaptability of the larger WAC pedagogy.
The Writing Across the Curriculum section welcomes all submissions. Possible topics include but are not limited to:
