The title will be 'Writing and the Ownership of English'


Globalization is no longer something to strive for. Like it or not, we all live in the global network of people, goods, ideas and languages that transcend national and political boundaries. In order to participate in the global society, everyone needs to develop the ability to communicate ideas effectively in writing. Today, the language of choice for global communication is often English, the dominant lingua franca. But whose English? Who owns English anyway? This presentation will explore what it means to teach and learn to write in English in the global context. I will begin by considering the question of ownership and then discuss why it is important for English language users and learners to develop a sense of ownership. I will then explain how the sense of ownership might translates into writing practices as well as the teaching and learning of English writing in Korea.
