Abstract:

Editor's Note: This is a new edition of a previously announced book.

It can be a challenge writing in a language that is not your native tongue. Constructing academic essays, dissertations and research articles in this second or foreign language is even more challenging, yet across the globe thousands of academics and students do so, some out of choice, some out of necessity. This book looks at a major issue within the field of English for Academic Purposes (EAP). It focuses on the issues confronting non-native-English-speaking academics, scholars and students, who face increasing pressure to write and publish in English, now widely acknowledged as the academic lingua franca. Questions of identity, access, pedagogy and empowerment naturally arise. This book looks at both student and professional academic writers, using qualitative text analysis, quantitative questionnaire data, corpus investigations and ethnographic approaches to searchingly examine issues central to the EAP field.

“This finely-edited and timely collection represents a splendid analysis of issues and challenges facing ESL/EFL academic writers at textual and sociocultural levels. It achieves this by profiling wide-ranging geographical and learning contexts and presenting a kaleidoscope of research topics and approaches. Without doubt, the book will remain a landmark anthology and a standard citation in research on ESL/EFL academic writing in years to come.” – Yongyan Li, Assistant Professor of Education, University of Hong Kong, PRC,

“Ramona Tang has assembled a collection of chapters that brings together a wealth of practical knowledge and experience of teaching and researching academic writing, together with insightful discussion of the position of and practices that surround English in higher education and academia more generally. This book captures the breadth of current thinking around academic writing and will be invaluable for practitioners and researchers.” – Ann Hewings, Senior Lecturer in Language and Communication, The Open University, UK,
