Globalizing Professional Writing Curricula: Positioning Students and Re-Positioning Textbooks.
Miles, Libby
Technical Communication Quarterly, v6 n2 p179-200 Spr 1997
Contends that, as publishers integrate international issues into professional writing textbooks, analysis is necessary about how curricular globalization is presented to students. Examines textbooks that position international students as clients, consumers, and exotics who present barriers to effective communication; most contain catalogs of decontextualized cultural factoids rather than strategies for identifying and understanding cultural differences. Contains an annotated bibliography. (PA)
