讲座介绍:
The purpose of this talk is to reexamine some of the foundational assumptions in academic writing instruction in the context of various societal changes that affect institutions of higher education. One of the major contributions of English for Specific Purposes (ESP), of which English for Academic Purposes (EAP) is a subset, is the importance of needs analysis in establishing the goals and objectives of language and writing instruction. Yet, needs analyses are often conceptualized at the micro level—i.e., particular courses, programs, disciplines or genres—rather than at the macro level—i.e., the role of higher education in the larger society. As a result, some of the foundational assumptions remain unexamined. In this presentation, I will show how conceptions of academic writing has shifted in response to various historical shifts in U.S. higher education—from the rise of research universities at the turn of the 20th century and the advent of open admissions in the 1970s to the privatization and globalization of higher education in the early 21st century. I will then discuss the ongoing tension between so-called general and academic writing at various levels—not only in general education writing courses but also at master’s and even doctoral levels—as institutions of higher education shift into new roles in today’s global economy.
