Session Description:

Translingual practice orients to languages as always in contact, generating new grammars and meanings in global contact zones. It challenges the monolingual orientation that languages are separate and constitute homogeneous texts and communities. In this roundtable, scholars from composition, linguistics, literature, philology, and rhetoric seek comparative perspectives and integrated models.
