Call for Essay Proposals for Volume entitled Study Abroad: Traditions, Directions, and Innovations

Presentation

Essay proposals are invited for Study Abroad: Traditions, Directions, and Innovations, a volume in the MLA Teaching Languages, Literatures, and Cultures series to be edited by Miriam Fuchs, Yves Loiseau, and Sarita Rai. As a resource for both teachers and administrators, the volume will examine three distinct, related areas of study abroad classes and programs: theories and practices of language-based curricula; theories and practices of thematic and content courses taught in English or the students’ first language; and program development and study abroad vis-à-vis the university structure.  

Specifically, Part I will feature essays and descriptions of 1) traditionally taught languages, language pedagogies, paradigms, and pilot programs in study abroad language courses. Examples might include course descriptions of learning through social networks, student learning blogs, multi-lingual websites, and “real time” models; integrative language-culture-literature methodologies; and syllabi that demonstrate various course formats, site locations and languages, durations of study and modes of visits abroad in new global contexts.

Part II will have essays on study abroad programs where the host languages may not be taught, and the emphasis is on instruction of content-specific or cultural-specific materials taught in English or the students’ first language. Examples would include theories, practices, analyses, descriptions, and syllabi of different types of student engagement and learning in social science, humanities, science, media studies, cultural studies, and technology, including opportunities for international service learning and international internships.

Part III will concern study abroad and the university. Essays in this category might examine the relations between academic personnel and university officials; the integration of study abroad courses in university curricula; and the role of study abroad teaching assignments to faculty scholarship, departmental responsibilities, and service.
