Title: Academic Writing and Interdisciplinarity
Published: 2010
Publisher: Cambridge Scholars Publishing
                http://www.c-s-p.org

Author: Ranamukalage Chandrasoma
Hardback: ISBN: 9781443824873 Pages: 230 Price: U.S. $ 52.99
Abstract:

This book critically explores academic interdisciplinarity, a relatively new area
of student writing in our contemporary contexts, from different perspectives:
disciplinary integration, generically diverse assessment tasks, linguistic
capital, pedagogical practices, extra-disciplinarity, pedagogic desire,
curricular issues, and socio-economic imperatives. Dr Chandrasoma's work
also offers a comprehensive study of how student writers grapple with
interdisciplinary knowledge in the academy.

Since almost every discipline has crossed its boundaries, student writing has
become a more complex and intricate academic exercise as has never been
before. Dr Chandrasoma emphasizes the need for knowledge for specific
purposes programs peripheral to the currently used English for specific
purposes programs in universities in order to enculturate novice student
writers into the new culture of interdisciplinary integration..

The seminal work proposes critical interdisciplinarity as a sustainable
pedagogical practice to cope with a plethora of difficulties encountered by
student writers at various stages of constructing their texts. The book meets
a long felt need as evidenced by the paucity of literature on interdisciplinary
studies in particular reference to student writing.

Hence this book is an asset for language teachers, academic support
advisors, curriculum developers, researchers and student writers. The book
will also serve as an invaluable resource for various programs where
academic literacies are vital. In particular it lends itself to programs such as
foundation studies, developmental education, and interdisciplinary studies
both at graduate and postgraduate levels in universities and colleges.
