    Genre and second language academic writing: Influences and developments

    Brian Paltridge from The University of Sydney
    Centre for Internationalisation and Parallel Language Use
    Friday 13 May 2016, 10:00 - 12:0

    The notion of genre is now an extremely important one in the teaching and researching of second language academic writing. In this presentation, I trace the history of genre and genre-based teaching in the area of second language academic writing through key work that has been influential in its development. Some of this work is more theoretical in that it has contributed to the development of ways of thinking about and researching genres, while other work has been more practical in that its focus has been on the teaching and learning of genres and, in this case, the teaching of academic writing in second language settings.
