Overview

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.

'Ethnographic Perspectives on Academic Writing makes a convincing case for the immersion of researchers in carefully described, particular academic cultures and contexts. Importantly, it also looks beyond the lens of textual analysis to the social, political, culture-community, and activity-oriented nature of academic writing. Novice and experienced researchers alike will benefit from the authors' arguments and evidence as to why it is important to conduct ethnographically-oriented studies of academic writing.'
