Saudelli edits book on the power of story for those living international lives

The Faculty of Professional Studies announces the release of Dr. Mary Gene Saudelli’s newest edited book, Voices from Far Away Lands: From Divergent to Convergent, with Cambridge Scholars Publishing. The book is a collection of essays that highlights the power of story, especially as told by those living international lives. With an emphasis on internationalization and global citizenship, the book is separated into four themes: Going Abroad, Embracing Cultures, Self and Familial Discovery, and The Walkabout. The storied reflections emphasize individual learning and growth. The stories themselves challenge concepts of identity, change, resilience, lifestyles and norms, ethics, citizenship, family, feminism, values, advocacy, and charity.

This is Dr. Saudelli’s second book, her first being the sole-authored The Balancing Act: International Higher Education in the 21st Century with Brill/Sense Publishers.

Voices from Far Away Lands: From Divergent to Convergent is available at Amazon, Cambridge Scholars and the UFV Bookstore.
