Homepage: http://www.personal.psu.edu/faculty/c/x/cxk37/
Institution: Pennsylvania State University
Linguistic Field: Language Acquisition; Applied Linguistics
Subject Language: English
Abstract: This paper considers the ways in which American students' active engagement in local host communities abroad is at risk. Constraining forces include the new demographics of American study abroad, prejudicial attitudes toward international education and sheltered program designs, a research enterprise committed to representing the perspectives of students primarily, and the influence of globalization on communicative practice and habits of thought. To counter these influences, the elements of an activist stance are proposed.
