Description

Janet Giltrow's Academic Writing: Writing and Reading in the Disciplines has been widely acclaimed in all its editions as a superb textbook-and an important contribution to the pedagogy of introducing university and college students to the conventions of writing in an academic milieu. Giltrow draws meaningfully on theory, especially genre theory, while using specific texts to keep the discussion grounded in the particular. Exercises throughout help students to interpret, summarize, analyze, and compare examples of academic and scholarly writing. The book is intended to demystify scholarly genres, shedding light on their discursive conventions and on academic readers' expectations and values. Academic Writing: An Introduction is a concise version of the full work, designed to be more compact and accessible for use in one-term writing courses. This new edition has been revised throughout and contains many new exercises, updated examples, an expanded discussion of research writing in the sciences, new glossary entries, and a new section on research ethics and the moral compass of the disciplines.
