Teaching Writing in Globalization: Remapping Disciplinary Work, edited by Darin Payne and Daphne Desser, examines the impact of globalization on disciplinary work in higher education and the impact of disciplinary work on the shape and evolution of globalization. Using writing instruction as its touchstone and rhetoric/composition as a disciplinary case study, these collected essays critically analyze the shift work of teaching, research, and administration on academia, exploring ways in which individuals and institutions can respond to the social, economic, and cultural changes presently underway.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A rich, nuanced discussion of the ways that composition can sustain a radically democratic globalization from below. These essays trace the oppositional literacies and rhetorics of solidarity informing the movements struggling against the global network of sweatshops where poisoned workers toil twelve or fourteen hours for ten dollars a day. -- Marc Bousquet, Santa Clara University
Teaching Writing in Globalization investigates competing meanings of 'globalization' to explore ways of using writing and the teaching of writing to negotiate the economic, geo-political, cultural, institutional, and disciplinary relations impacting our lives. Offering perspectives from some of the leading voices in rhetoric and composition, it provides a necessary and welcome opening into the multiple and specific ways we might (re)write and (re)read the global-local. -- Min-Zhan Lu, University of Louisville
