This book responds to literary and composition theorists who have called for reinventing English studies, uniting the study of literature and the study of writing in liberatory rhetoric. The book describes the partnership between the EAS Department at Shkoder, Albania, and the University of Graz, the Austrian institution that has supported its Albanian partner for over a decade; the University of Graz has provided a powerful model for rhetoricizing English studies, a concept explored in the book and which relates this microcosm to departments of English studies.
