Issue 1 (Special Issue: Internationalizing the WAC/WID Curriculum)

Guest editors: Stefanie Frigo and Collie Fulford, North Carolina Central University

One of the great challenges in charting the development of internationalization within WAC and WID is the fact that multiple definitions of the term "internationalizing" or "internationalization" exist. In a general sense, "internationalizing" classes, curricula, or institutions often seems designed to make students better able to communicate and compete in a globalized world, but the multiple prior and co-existent definitions that are in circulation in current WAC/WID scholarship have somewhat muddied the waters of practical application. In this special issue of Across the Disciplines (ATD), we hope to continue this work, examining the ways in which internationalization is defined within the field, and developing pedagogical and curricular applications further.
