9781847180933: Language and Discipline Perspectives on Academic Discourse

This book represents the physical outcome of the symposium Academic Voices in Contrast , organised at the University of Bergen, Norway, in May 2006. The symposium, focusing on recent research within the field of academic discourse, was initiated and organised by the KIAP project (Cultural Identity in Academic Prose;. In this project, a special focus has been put on the study of the voice(s) of the academic author, in the doubly contrastive perspective of language and discipline. A narrow selection of distinguished scholars were invited to participate at the symposium. They were asked to address issues related to traditional linguistic versus contextual approaches or to interlingual and interdisciplinary similarities and differences in academic discourse. By the papers of the following, the symposium and the present book constitute a clear advancement of the research on academic discourse: M. A. A. Ariza, L. Berge, M. Bondi, S. V. Bonn, S. Carter-Thomas, T. Dahl, K. Fløttum, A. M. Gjesdal, F. Grossmann, K. Hyland, T. Kinn, L. Lundquist, A. Mauranen, M. Pabón, E. Rowley-Jolivet, F. Salager-Meyer, P. Shaw, J. M. Swales, J.L. Tønnesson, E. T. Vold, F. Wirth.

About the Author:

The editor, Kjersti Fløttum is Professor of French linguistics and Vice-Rector for international relations at the University of Bergen, Norway. Her main research fields are textlinguistics, genre theory, linguistic polyphony, academic discourse and political discourse. She is co-author of ScaPoLine. La théorie scandinave de la polyphonie linguistique (Kimé 2004) and Academic Voices (Benjamins 2006).

Review:

"The volume as a whole brings together a truly unique variety of voices and intellectual resources that distinguish it from other monographs and volumes on academic discourse. A particularly attractive feature is that among the globally diffused methods represented, academic voices of the Nordic region can be distinguished and appreciated, in the KIAP project and others. This range is made more valuable by the various perspectives offered across studies and approaches on the specific areas of academic discourse, such as author positioning, evaluation, and conditionality. [...] In our view, this gathering of contributions by distinguished scholars in the field presents an exciting intellectual and geographical cross-section of academic discourse scholarship." Alfredo A. Ferreira, University of British Columbia, and Lene Nordrum, Chalmers University of Technology Linguistics and the Human Sciences, 11.5.12
