Grounded in research and addressing an array of aspects of education abroad – including intercultural communication, changing relationships, and career impact – Coming Home Your Way will be an invaluable tool for any student planning, experiencing, or returning from a stay abroad. Drawing from theory and research from multiple disciplines, and real-world experiences of students who have studied abroad, the volume addresses key themes critical to understanding reentry, including individual differences in taking in experience, communication patterns and approaches, the reentry transition, the nature of relationships in reentry, bridging reentry and career, and more. Within each chapter are opportunities for self-reflection that allow readers to integrate the ideas presented into their own experience. Compelling short fictional accounts add flavor and detail that bring theory to life. Coming Home Your Way provides a window into the complex experience of intercultural reentry. Reentry from an education-abroad experience can be a period of intense growth, and can feel disruptive and confusing while it’s happening. The authors explain and explore these complexities in a conversational style that will engage students, and with the rigor expected by their instructors. Like no other book currently on the market, Coming Home Your Way will give college and university students insight into the challenges and intercultural opportunities that reentry offers.

At the start of the second decade of the new millennium, there is increasing awareness of the development of newer 'smart' and more interactive media in precipitate speed in many parts of the world. The concept of change – in contrast to continuity – is central to the increasing interest in digital media. This focus has not, however, been vigorously matched by substantive theoretical discussions, or by extensive empirical examinations of computer-mediated communication and intercultural communication. Against such a backdrop, contributors to this volume offer theoretical insights, fresh evidence and rich applications in assessing the nature of digital culture(s) in order to address assumptions about the present state of mediated global society(ies) and the trajectory into the future. Chapters explore what happens in praxis when digital media are implemented across cultures and are contested and negotiated within complex local and political conditions. Special attention is given to showcasing prominent interpretative and critical research from diverse voices in multiple locations across the world and with varying backgrounds. As such, this volume presents a rich and colorful tapestry that offers opportunities for comparative analyses and deepened international understandings of digital media connections, particularly in the areas of identity, community and politics.
