English for Research Publication Purposes: Critical Plurilingual Pedagogies


Add your own review!

Overview

Scholars who use English as an additional language confront challenges when disseminating their research in the global market of knowledge production dominated by English. English for Research Publication Purposes analyses the experiences and practices of these scholars across the globe and presents critical plurilingual pedagogies as a theoretically and empirically informed means of supporting them. This book: * Draws on an empirical study of a Latin American university's effort to mount a course that provides support to emerging and established scholars who use English as an additional language; * Brings theoretically informed discussions of critical pedagogies, plurilingualism and identity affirmation to better serve plurilingual scholars who seek to publish their research in English-language journals; * Provides examples of classroom activities that can be adapted and adopted to local contexts and realities in a curriculum based on critical plurilingual pedagogies; * Proposes future directions for research into the internationally urgent, growing concerns of global scholars who produce English-medium academic knowledge for the world stage. Incisive and cutting-edge, English for Research Publication Purposes will be key reading for academics and upper-level students working in the areas of ESP, EAP, ERPP, and Applied Linguistics.

Reviews

Drawing on their own critically reflective practice, Englander and Corcoran have produced an account not only of their own careful empirical interrogation of that practice but of precisely how the plurilingual approach they implemented might be applied to support research writers using English as an additional language. A timely and very welcome addition to the literature. Sally Frances Burgess, Universidad de La Laguna, Spain This book paves the way for a whole new paradigm in ERPP, one that draws attention to the contingencies and inequities surrounding knowledge production in the globalized world while respecting the pragmatic needs of multilingual scholars working within it. As such, it provides support while refusing to reproduce the universalizing myths that currently keep the hegemony in place. Karen Bennett, New University of Lisbon, Portugal
