Book Information

   

Title: Language in the Academy
Subtitle: Cultural Reflexivity and Intercultural Dynamics
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847693211
Series Title: Languages for Intercultural Communication and Education
Description:

This book takes a critical look at why issues of language in higher
education are routinely marginalised, despite the growing
internationalisation of universities. Through analyses of a variety of
intercultural encounters, the book highlights the range of interpretative
possibilities available for understanding these encounters, and suggests
the role that the reality of the contemporary intercultural dynamic between
the Socratic and Confucian pedagogic traditions can play in driving change
to the pedagogic practices of higher education. Another important aim of
the book is to examine language in the academy as an object of cultural
theory. While rooted in the practical and empirical reality of teaching and
using language in higher education, this book argues for the importance of
examining the institutional interface between language and higher
education, and of critically exploring the values inscribed in the pedagogy
and evaluation of academic language.
