Overview of the pdf book Multilingual Online Academic Collaborations as Resistance: Crossing Impassable Borders (Volume 4) (Researching Multilingually, 4)

This book particulars on-line educational collaborations between universities within the UK and USA and the Islamic University of Gaza. The chapters recount the challenges and successes of on-line collaborations which aimed to keep up a circulation of knowledge to and from the Gaza Strip, regardless of a seamless blockade by Israel and Egypt, and to forge relationships between people, establishments and cultures. The chapters look at, from completely different views, what occurs when languages and the web facilitate encounters, and the elemental significance this has as a type of defiance and of resistance to the bodily confinement skilled by Gaza’s teachers, college students and the final inhabitants. They spotlight the restrictions of multilingual and intercultural encounters when they’re disadvantaged of the sensory proximity of face-to-face conditions and what’s misplaced within the translation of languages, practices and experiences from the ‘actual’ to the ‘digital’ world.
