Ruiz, R. 1057/978-1-137-52724-0_2 17 18 S. ALVAREZ on those deemed marginal—dictates that language standardization is necessary for market growth and for expanding transnational corporate partnerships. But there is room for transdisciplinary scholarship that counters this colonial logic by locating intersections among composition and rhetoric, literacy, and writing studies. The transdisciplinarity of literacy studies already traverses fields, thus providing a model for other crossdisciplinary methodologies that help counter the rhetoric of modernity with positions that reveal the darker sides of colonization and language standardization.

Centuries later these European literacies still dominate, with notions of decontextualized autonomous skillsets framing deficit approaches to language standardization policies (Horner and Lu; Kalman and Street). Research that challenges autonomous models of language and literacy standardization has turned to how various forms of local literacies historically have been marginalized in a hemisphere largely dominated by Spain, Portugal, England, the Netherlands, France, Russia, and later the United States.
