ENG 298 - Writing as Global Communication

English may not actually be everywhere, though it can seem that way. It is becoming the language of business and diplomacy. Globally, people use English for their social media accounts and other online activities, often alongside or in conjunction with their native tongues. We use it on campus for everything from casual conversations to participating in academic discourse. Through discussion and writing, this course investigates how we communicate in written English across cultural barriers, including the opportunities English provides for opening us to new experiences and the complications that arise when other cultures adopt a colonialist language as their own.
