Series Title: Linguistic Insights. Studies in Language and Communication. Vol. 80
Description:

The present is a time of major change in the world of higher education.
Conceptions of knowledge and learning as well as course provision are being
powerfully altered by current socio-political agendas, constantly evolving
technology, demographic developments. The question of identity and its
construction in narrative are central to reflection on these issues. Indeed
the construction of multimodal/hybridized narratives involves discoursal
processes where perceptions of culture and identity, attitudinal and
evaluative stances are represented, negotiated, marginalized, transformed.

This volume presents a rich variety of perspectives on verbal/visual
narrative texts in higher education coming from Europe, North America,
South Africa, China and Australia. It includes case studies and original
research from a wide spectrum of disciplinary domains (political science,
law, medicine, biology, ICT, teacher education) set in a range of different
education contexts (online communities and classrooms;
native-speaker/nonnative-speaker, intercultural and
multilingual/multiethnic milieus).
