Session Description:

Translingual practice orients to languages as always in contact, generating new grammars and meanings in global contact zones. It challenges the monolingual orientation that languages are separate and constitute homogeneous texts and communities. In this roundtable, scholars from composition, linguistics, literature, philology, and rhetoric seek comparative perspectives and integrated models.


Subjects:

  • General Literature – Rhetoric and Rhetorical Theory

  • The Teaching of Language and Literature – General
