"Min Wang's fine-grained case study of three Chinese learners of English in the USA provides much insight into the way international students navigate complex transnational identities. A timely and important contribution to our understanding of language learning in the digital age."-- Bonny Norton, University of British Columbia, Canada
"Min Wang has conducted a careful analysis of the positioning moves and agentive actions of three Chinese students learning English in a university-based language institute in the U.S. By examining multiple dimensions of these students' positioning work across time, through varied modalities, and in different locations-both physical and virtual, Wang provides a powerful demonstration of how identity, agency and language learning are interdependent phenomena. Applied linguists and other scholars will welcome this important contribution to the growing body of research using holistic, ecological approaches when examining agency and language learning." -- Elizabeth Miller, University of North Carolina
"In this book, the reader will see how young adult L2 learners develop multimodal and multilingual literacies and navigate their positional identities as a capable community member in a social context. This is an excellent contribution to the second language field with important theoretical and practical insights." -- Bogum Yoon, State University of New York at Binghamton
