Title: Academic Writing in a Global Context
Subtitle: The politics and practices of publishing in English
Written By: Theresa Lillis

Description:

Academic Writing in a Global Context addresses the issue of the pressure on
academics worldwide to produce their work in English in scholarly
publishing, and why the growth of the use of academic English matters.

Drawing on an eight year ‘text-ethnographic’ study of the experiences of
fifty scholars working in Europe, this book discusses these questions at
both a macro and micro level- through discussions of knowledge evaluation
systems on all levels, and analysis of the progress of a text towards
publication. In addition to this, case studies of individual scholars in
their local institutions and countries are used to illustrate experiences
of using English in the academic world.

Academic Writing in a Global Context examines the impact of the growing
dominance of English on academic writing for publication globally. The
authors explore the ways in which the global status attributed to English
is impacting on the lives and practices of multilingual scholars working in
contexts where English is not the official language of communication and
throws into relief the politics surrounding academic publishing.
