International Exchanges on the Study of Writing

Series Editors: Joan Mullin, University of North Carolina, Charlotte; Magnus Gustafsson, Chalmers University of Technology; Terry Myers Zawacki, George Mason University; and Federico Navarro, Universidad de O'Higgins.

Associate Editors: Ana M. Cortés Lagos, Syracuse University; Anna S. Habib, George Mason University; and Matthew Overstreet, Khalifa University.

Books in the International Exchanges on the Study of Writing Series offer worldwide perspectives on writing, writers, teaching with writing, and scholarly writing practices, in particular those that challenge parochial understandings of these areas by drawing on scholarship across national and disciplinary borders. The series examines writing activities in 21st-century contexts by considering how these activities are informed by globalization, national/transnational identities, social media and social networking, and increased cross-cultural communication and collaboration. As such, the series strives to investigate how both the local and the international inform writing research and the facilitation of writing development.

It extends the International Exchanges and Clearinghouse goals of accessibility by making available original and translated peer-reviewed scholarship on writing in the languages of the region: Spanish and Portuguese.
