Theme: The theme of EATAW2019 invites contributions that explore and problematize the possibilities and challenges of academic writing as a place of intersections.

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.
