After today’s presentation, we’ll start by continuing our conversations on writing-communication borders. First, we’ll discuss a quick read from The Chronicle titled “A Way Out of Silence.” The third and the final paragraphs of are particular interest to us as we continue with our borders theme. So using this as our thought of the day, what do you think?

Time permitting, we’ll watch as much of Writing Across Borders as we can, but we’re also beginning our third and final unit, “Revising Our Borders.” Looking back at what we’ve done, the American-Academic style of writing we’ve used to present these border issues, how can we reorganize and rethink our last papers in a different way? We’ll be trying out intercultural approaches to communication and writing, figuring much of this out together, and with the help of other scholars, such as Lisle and Mano. Let’s get started.
