|Title:||How Study Abroad Impacts the American Identity|
|Subject(s):||Study abroad, Globalization, Patriotism, Identity, Nationalism|
|Abstract:||In the age of globalization and expanding international education, the University of Illinois is trying to increase the number of study abroad participants. This is important because now, more than ever, countries are beginning to work together in this new age of globalization. Most articles that deal with our topic discuss what to do before a student studies abroad, but they do not go into detail about what actually happens when a student arrives in a different country. Our project considers how the study abroad experience impacts the student as an American and how students find their place in their country and also how it compares to other countries as well.|

Professor Lauren Marshall Bowen
Life writing encompasses many genres (diary, memoir, biography, chronicle, confessional poetry) and media (print, web text, video). This class will explore life story research: a qualitative method of inquiry that involves gathering narratives about life experience in order to expand knowledge of a particular social or cultural subject. As an advanced composition course, Rhet 233 includes advanced writing and research activities, such as anticipating audience, exploring stylistic choices, synthesizing and responding to material from multiple sources, planning and shaping a draft, receiving and incorporating feedback, revising, and editing.
