Qianqian Zhang-Wu, Assistant Professor of English and Director of Multilingual Writing, has published an article titled “‘Keeping Home Languages Out of the Classroom’: Multilingual International Students’ Perceptions of Translingualism in an Online College Composition Class” in the Journal of Multilingual Theories and Practices. In the article, Zhang-Wu draws upon an analysis of multilingual students’ writing in an asynchronous online writing class to find that the majority of students were “predisposed with an English-superiority fallacy,” with some students “enact[ing] translingualism and code-mesh[ing] with their home languages to serve different purposes.” The article points to the “complexity and dynamics of multilingual students’ translingual writing practice online and…directions for future research.”
