Meeting Description:

The idea of a stage – as space of performance, period of development or both – opens up rich ways of thinking about academic writing and academic speech. When we talk about stages, we might mean the stages of a text, the stages of a writing process, the stages of a writing career. We might mean writing as performance, or the stages of the seminar room or lecture theatre, where discoursal norms demand that speaking entails a kind of performing. How might EAP teachers and thinkers reckon with the stages – process and performance – of writing, teaching, speaking, research, academic work as a whole?

Plenary speakers:

Paul Kei Matsuda, Arizona State University, USA
Pat Thomson, University of Nottingham, UK
Lisa McGrath (Sheffield Hallam University, UK) and Raffaella Negretti (Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden)
