Title: Writing in Context(s)
Subtitle: Textual Practices and Learning Processes in Sociocultural Settings
Series Title: Studies in Writing 15
Description:

The premise that writing is a socially-situated act of interaction between
readers and writers is well established. This volume first corroborates
this premise by citing pertinent evidence, through the analysis of written
texts and interactive writing contexts, and from educational settings
across different cultures from which we have scant evidence. Secondly, all
chapters, though addressing the social nature of writing, propose a variety
of perspectives, making the volume multidisciplinary in nature. Finally,
this volume accounts for the diversity of the research perspectives each
chapter proposes by situating the plurality of terminological issues and
methodologies into a more integrative framework. Thus a coherent overall
framework is created within which different research strands (i.e., the
sociocognitive, sociolinguistic research, composition work, genre analysis)
and pedagogical practices developed on L1 and L2 writing can be situated
and acquire meaning.

This volume will be of particular interest to researchers in the areas of
language and literacy education in L1 and L2, applied linguists interested
in school, and academic contexts of writing, teacher educators and graduate
students working in the fields of L1 and L2 writing.
