Students' Perceptions of Academic Writing as a Mode of Communication
Majidi, Mojdeh
Online Submission, Paper was presented at the Canadian Association for the Study of Language and Learning (Halifax, Canada, May 2005)
Adopting the social theory of writing and new rhetorical genre studies (Bakhtin, 1986; Dias, Freedman, Medway, & Pare, 1999; Freedman & Medway, 1994; Miller, 1984/1994) as the theoretical framework in this study I made an attempt to explore graduate students' perceptions of academic writing as a mode of communication in academia. I interviewed four graduate students in applied language studies and also analyzed their term papers to find out whether they consider themselves as participating in academic discourse through academic writing or not? Or that whether they consider themselves members of research community within their own discipline or they write to merely fulfill the course requirements.
