Welcome to EATAW2019 – Academic writing at intersections: Interdisciplinarity, genre hybridization, multilingualism, digitalization, and interculturality.
Venue: Chalmers University of Technology, Göteborg, Sweden.
When: July 2-4, 2019
Theme: The theme of EATAW2019 invites contributions that explore and problematize the possibilities and challenges of academic writing as a place of intersections. Such intersections may include academic writing across and beyond disciplinary audiences as well as the hybridization of academic writing genres.
Other intersections would be: academic writing as a site of intercultural communication, academic writing by translingual writers and in multilingual societies, academic writing in digitalized settings, including digital genres, and blended learning.
Closely aligned with these potential intersections are questions about how academic writing as a discipline and as a higher education activity succeeds in promoting writing development and disciplinary learning at the many various intersections. The full range of formats are yet to be decided but will include both research-oriented contributions and practice-oriented ones.
More information will soon be announced here.
