Ethnographic Perspectives on Academic Writing

Format: Paperback

This book argues that adopting ethnographically oriented perspectives on research into academic writing is a valuable means of deepening understanding of the social influences on language use and individuals' experiences in academic writing contexts, helping to gain insider views of writers' experiences, writing practices, and the contexts in which academic texts are produced and assessed.

Key features

  • Paltridge, Starfield and Tardy examine a range of academic writing contexts including undergraduate writing, postgraduate writing, writing for publication, and the learning and teaching of academic writing.
  • The authors draw together work in the areas of English for academic purposes, academic literacies, genre studies, and writing in the disciplines.


The series attracts single or co-authored volumes from authors researching at the cutting edge of this dynamic field of interdisciplinary enquiry. The titles range from books that make such developments accessible to the non-specialist reader to those which explore in depth their relevance for the way language is to be conceived as a subject, and how courses and classroom activities are to be designed. As such, these books not only extend the field of applied linguistics itself and lend an additional significance to its enquiries, but also provide an indispensable professional foundation for language pedagogy and its practice.

The scope of the series includes:
  • second language acquisition
  • bilingualism and multi/plurilingualism
  • language pedagogy and teacher education
  • testing and assessment
  • language planning and policy
  • language internationalization
  • technology-mediated communication
  • discourse-, conversation-, and contrastive-analysis
  • pragmatics
  • stylistics
  • lexicography
  • translation


  • ... Provide rich resources with which to explore the field's huge potential to address the new challenges in academic writin research, and throw light on rapidly changing practices in a mobile, diverse and connected world.
