Writing studies, writing center practice and research, and the teaching of academic writing have developed not only into a trans-disciplinary but also a transnational endeavor. People and ideas, books and concepts within our field have been traveling back and forth across countries and continents. Sometimes the resulting connections, traditions, influences might be implicit but often scholars and practitioners are well aware of who or what has shaped one’s own work in our shared field.
For the German-based JoSch: Journal of Writing Studies (vol. 25) we are primarily looking for collaborative contributions from diverse teams of authors centering their experiences with each other’s work. We invite these teams to explore the back and forth of writing concepts, theory, and practice across national, institutional, and disciplinary borders. Submissions by single authors are nonetheless possible.
