Abstract: A writing workshop is an ideal vehicle for online international collaboration. Two professors will teach the workshop in two different cultures, organizing it around the theme of place. Students in Cortland, NY and Eskisehir, Turkey will produce and respond to each other’s writing about their home-places and the identities associated with these places. We expect this workshop to offer surprises about as well as challenges to the ways we think about those from cultures other than our own.
