This workshop reviews the theoretical framework of Intercultural Rhetoric (IR), its primary research methods, and applications in teaching writing. The workshop consists of three parts. In the first part, we will provide an overview of IR with a focus on its continued relevance for researchers and teachers of second language writing, from contrastive rhetoric to translingualism. Part two illustrates the methods of analysis associated with IR with a detailed description of a recent empirical study that explored the writing in English of international graduate students in the US employing multiple IR methods of analysis. Finally, we will present a pedagogical application, an ESP course for Chinese undergraduate students competing in the international Interdisciplinary Contest in Modeling, based on an IR analysis of winning essays. The audience will be invited to reflect on the research and pedagogical applications presented and possible application that audience members could develop in their contexts.

This is a ticketed event. Visit the Institute page for more information.
