University Writing: Selves and Texts in Academic Societies examines new trends in the different theoretical perspectives (cognitive, social and cultural) and derived practices in the activity of writing in higher education. These perspectives are analyzed on the basis of their conceptualization of the object academic and scientific writing; of the writers their identities, attitudes and perspectives, be it students, teachers or researchers; and of the derived instructional practices - the ways in which the teaching-learning situations may be organized.

The volume samples writing research traditions and perspectives both in Europe and the United States, working on their situated nature and avoiding easy or superficial comparisons in order to enlarge our understanding of common problems and some emerging possibilities. In addition, the volume promotes a dialogue between these perspectives and traditions and, by addressing the identified needs and unsolved questions, bridges gaps and move forward in our knowledge regarding academic writing activities in higher education settings.

University Writing: Selves and Texts in Academic Societies is addressed to researchers, advanced students and those academics interested in learning about European and North-American writing research traditions in dialogue and about how to take the individual and social perspectives in writing into account.

About the Author:

Montserrat Castello - Ramon Llull University, Barcelona, Spain
Christiane Donahue - Dartmouth College, Hanover, NH, USA

Review:

Every language, every country, indeed every university seems to have its own culture of academic and scientific writing, with its particular set of meanings and webs of relationships. To break through such localism and find some features of academic writing common across the world, scholars in various disciplines from nine countries articulate their specific frames of reference. Among their topics are academic writing and authorial voice, students' and tutors' understanding of new academic literacy practices, writing cultures and genres in European higher education, and helping doctoral students of education face writing and emotional challenges in identity transition. Distributed in North America by Turpin Distribution. --Book News Inc. Portland, OR
