EATAW2019 – Academic writing at intersections: Interdisciplinarity, genre hybridization, multilingualism, digitalization, and interculturality. Venue: Chalmers University of Technology, Göteborg, Sweden. When: July 2-4, 2019 with pre-conference workshops and a reception July 1
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.
From July 2-4 2019 the European Association for the Teaching of Academic Writing (EATAW) held its 10th conference. The conference was guided by the leading theme “Academic writing at intersections: Interdisciplinarity, genre hybridization, multilingualism, digitalization, and interculturality” and takes place at the Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden.
Participants made contributions, which debated the possibilities and challenges of academic writing as a space of intersections. Such intersections were reflected in aspects of academic writing as inter-and transdisciplinary practice, hybridization of academic writing genres, intercultural communication, digitalized settings and many more.
