Woolf, Michael – Frontiers: The Interdisciplinary Journal of Study Abroad, 2011
Western Europe has been constructed in the field of education abroad as a "traditional" location: in some sense or another that label is used to suggest that it has a kind of static or dormant significance. In reality, Western Europe is an enormously rich location for study abroad precisely because it is a fluid learning environment that…

Gristwood, Anthony; Woolf, Michael – Frontiers: The Interdisciplinary Journal of Study Abroad, 2011
London is the paramount example of a city that is not bounded by its geography and cannot be grasped in isolation. The U.K.'s national capital and the prime focus for business, finance and creative industries, London also transcends the U.K.'s borders as a hub of the world economy. This paper argues that London, a city riddled by the socioeconomic…

Blair, Scott – Frontiers: The Interdisciplinary Journal of Study Abroad, 2011
Study abroad by U.S. students, despite recent growth into non-western and rural destinations, often remains focused on cities, often very large and highly urbanized ones. While the destination cities for study abroad are located across the globe, European cities remain predominant, and thus, this article focuses on study abroad in one city. The…

Ricks, Thomas – Frontiers: The Interdisciplinary Journal of Study Abroad, 2011
Jerusalem is more than an intriguing global historical city; it is a classroom for liberal learning and international understanding. It had never been a city of one language, one religion and one culture. Looking at the origins of Jerusalem's name indicates its international and multicultural nature. While Israelis designate Jerusalem as their…

McGuire, Patrick A.; Spates, James L. – Frontiers: The Interdisciplinary Journal of Study Abroad, 2011
The urban scholar Jane Jacobs once described city life as "the ballet of the streets." In more than a quarter century of joint teaching, the authors have used Jacobs' metaphor to help their students understand that cities are living organisms created and maintained, for good or ill, by the people who live and work in them. At heart their…

Augeri, Hunter; Efstathiou, Eirene; Michou, Maria; Sanders, Jan Motyka – Frontiers: The Interdisciplinary Journal of Study Abroad, 2011
Greece conjures up images of idyllic island landscapes, turquoise seas and venerable mythic deeds set among majestic monuments. These notions are, moreover, often associated with a history, religious culture and language that are ancient. Tourist posters and national sentiment aside, today the Hellenic Republic is a country that is as much…

Wagenknecht, Thomas – Frontiers: The Interdisciplinary Journal of Study Abroad, 2011
Creating first hand experiences of urban cultures that focus on reflection and leave profound impressions on students while providing the framing for future cycles of experiential learning is a complex and difficult dynamic to navigate. The way urban manifestations of a different culture are directly experienced varies depending on the…

Brewer, Elizabeth – Frontiers: The Interdisciplinary Journal of Study Abroad, 2011
Study abroad's purpose, once conceived primarily as a means for acquiring knowledge in a content area as well as language acquisition, began in the 1980s to be considered a vehicle for helping American students become less "parochial" and better prepared to live and work in a globalized world. To achieve these goals, students must be…

Woolf, Michael – Frontiers: The Interdisciplinary Journal of Study Abroad, 2010
The purpose of this essay is to focus on assertions that have accumulated around the work of international education professionals and practitioners: the idea of the global citizen. The propagation of this notion derives from, essentially, two sources: (1) it is a recurrent claim made by study abroad programs; and (2) it is used also as a means of…

Allen, Heather – Frontiers: The Interdisciplinary Journal of Study Abroad, 2010
The idea that study abroad (SA) is an ideal context for acquiring language is one largely supported by foreign language (FL) students and their teachers, the latter often recollecting their own successful if not life-transforming sojourns abroad.
