Reading the world: Reading and identity practices in the context of globalization
Issue Date: 
Paper presented at the 14th Annual Conference of the International Association for World Englishes (IAWE) on “World Englishes and world's languages: Convergence, enrichment, or death?”, Hong Kong, China, 3 – 5 December 2008
This paper examines scholarship and empirical work on the use of multicultural literature in the English Language Arts classroom in the U.S. in the context of globalization. Studies in the U.S. tend to focus on diversity within the nation to the neglect of diversity beyond the States. Beyond multicultural perspectives as it is framed in the U.S. context, a global/local perspective that recognizes diversity within and beyond the nation is a more relevant construct for examining the literature curriculum in this globalized postmodernity.
