Writing Out of Limbo: International Childhoods, Global Nomads and Third Culture Kids

Edited by Gene H. Bell-Villada, Professor of Romance Languages et al.  Cambridge Scholars Publishing, 2011. In this collection, which includes essays by Bell-Villada and Leyla Rouhi, John B. McCoy and John T. McCoy Professor of Romance Languages, writers from around the world address complex issues presented by growing up a “global nomad.” Considering topics that range from language acquisition and identity formation to adaptation, memory, and grief, authors’ reflections will strike a chord with third culture kids and prove revelatory for parents, teachers, and citizens of the new global age.
