ab 48,00 € inkl. MwSt.
Expanding circles, transcending disciplines, multimodal texts are just three of the myriads of terms used in connection with new tendencies in the fields of English and American Studies. But do they really indicate a new-found self-confidence of previously marginalized disciplines or are they just soon-to-be-replaced buzzwords of fields on the verge of drowning in a maelstrom of a neo-liberal understanding of science? This book is intended to provide a forum for papers discussing these terms and the questions they are raising from various angles and disciplinary perspectives and/or for papers presenting research in literary studies, media studies, cultural studies, linguistics and language teaching and learning methodology that incorporate (or defy) these new tendencies.
