Description

The Routledge Handbook of English for Academic Purposes provides an accessible, authoritative and comprehensive introduction to English for Academic Purposes (EAP), covering the main theories, concepts, contexts and applications of this fast-growing area of applied linguistics. Forty-five chapters are organised into eight sections covering:

    • Conceptions of EAP
    • Contexts for EAP
    • EAP and language skills
    • Research perspectives
    • Pedagogic genres
    • Research genres
    • Pedagogic contexts
    • Managing learning.

Authored by specialists from around the world, each chapter focuses on a different area of EAP and provides a state-of-the-art review of the key ideas and concepts. Illustrative case studies are included wherever possible, setting out in an accessible way the pitfalls, challenges and opportunities of research or practice in that area. Suggestions for further reading are included with each chapter.

The Routledge Handbook of English for Academic Purposes is an essential reference for advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students of EAP within English, Applied Linguistics and TESOL.

Reviews

"Don’t do EAP without it! This volume defines—in 45 chapters by the experts who have shaped the field internationally—the current nature and scope, prevailing activities, and conceptual foundations of EAP: an authoritative, clearly organized resource for advanced students, researchers, program administrators, and educators in universities and schools around the world." Alister Cumming, University of Toronto, Canada

"This Handbook is an authoritative, comprehensive and truly international compendium of theory, research and practice in the field of EAP. A group of distinguished scholars provide internationally-relevant and at the same time socially-situated insightful analyses of existing and emerging understandings of EAP in diverse locations across the globe and with reference to traditional and novel EAP genres and contexts." Rosa M. Manchón, University of Murcia, Spain

"This volume illustrates how widely EAP is practiced and the variety of research traditions that have influenced current understandings of academic English. The contributors demonstrate that educational values and practices differ considerably from country to country and encourage a critical stance to researching, developing and teaching EAP in local contexts." Diane Schmitt, Nottingham Trent University, UK
