International Exchanges on the Study of Writing Series
Copublished with the WAC Clearinghouse
This edited collection offers chapters based on presentations at the Second Latin American Association of Writing Studies in Higher Education and Professional Contexts International Congress (II ALES) held in Santiago, Chile, in 2018. Together, the contributors to the collection—drawn from nine countries and writing in three languages—highlight the many perspectives, resources, and traditions that enrich and expand international conversations about writing, writing instruction, and writing research. The multiple locations from which the chapters in this collection emerge contribute significantly to the situated findings and concerns they address, with the authors of each chapter considering the social, lingual, and institutional contexts shaping their work. Drawing on both robust traditions and cutting-edge research, this collection makes a distinctive contribution to discussions of writing in and beyond Latin America.
This book is also available as an open access ebook through the WAC Clearinghouse.
