Overview

This exciting volume in the Teaching the New English series is concerned with establishing the ways in which English Studies, with its capacity to embrace a diversity of practices, methodologies, voices, and even subjects, realizes its potential for interdisciplinarity by incorporating new media into its teaching. The World Wide Web has firmly established English as the lingua franca of the Internet. With this development in mind, the volume seeks to provide a cross-cultural representation of how teachers and students on both sides of the Atlantic have embraced new technologies and media at the beginning of the Internet Age. Featuring a useful Glossary of Terms and lists of Further Reading & Key Individuals in the field, this will be an essential volume for all teachers of English Studies.
