Abstract:

This volume investigates identity traits in academic discourse. Its main
purpose is to better understand how and to what extent language forms and
functions are adapting to the globalisation of academic discourse. Key
factors of verbal behaviour such as the affiliation of actors to one or more
cultures have been found to interact, producing transversal identities that are
independent of local traits, with a tendency to merge and hybridise in an
intercultural sense.

The volume consists of three main parts: The first deals with identity traits
across languages and cultures, as the use of a given language affects the
writing of a scholar, especially when it is not his/her native language. The
second comprises investigations of identity features characterising specific
disciplinary communities or marking a differentiation from other branches of
knowledge. The third part of the volume deals with identity aspects emerging
from genre and gender variation.
