What draws people to study abroad or volunteer in far-off communities? Often the answer is romance - the romance of landscapes, people, languages, the very sense of border-crossing - and longing for liberation, attraction to the unknown, yearning to make a difference. This volume explores the complicated and often fraught desires to study and volunteer abroad. In doing so, the book sheds light on how affect is managed by educators and mobilized by students and volunteers themselves, and how these structures of feeling relate to broader social and economic forces.
