This volume explores a number of themes of current interest to those engaged in researching and teaching academic genres: the social and cultural context of academic writing; differences between the academic and non-academic text; the analysis of particular text types; variation within and across disciplines; and applications of theory in the teaching of writing. The contributors include many of today's most influential scholars in the area of academic literacy, working in a wide variety of tertiary academic contexts in Britain, Finland, Hong Kong, Zimbabwe, Australia and the United States.
