Abstract

This introductory essay aims to shed light on the theoretical raison d’être, the
intersections within, and the main lines shared by the five essays that make
up this section. The section is dedicated to transnational and blended learning
spaces in telecollaborative, trans-institutional projects. This piece pivots on the
increasingly important and pervasive theoretical notion of the “Spatial Turn”
(Bachmann-Medick 2016, 211-243), which has become increasingly visible
in, among other fields, pedagogy and cultural studies, and more specifically
in the idea of boundary-crossing and hybridisation not only of physical but
also of methodological spaces. This introductory essay shows how these five
scholarly pieces contribute in different ways to enriching the interdisciplinary
scholarly space at the intersection of intercultural awareness and technology-
enhanced teaching and learning of foreign languages and cultures.
