The Intercultural Component in Textbooks for Teaching a Service Technical Writing Course
Matveeva, Natalia
Journal of Technical Writing and Communication, v37 n2 p151-166 2007
This research article investigates new developments in the representation of the intercultural component in textbooks for a service technical writing course. Through textual analysis, using quantitative and qualitative techniques, I report discourse analysis of 15 technical writing textbooks published during 1993-2006. The theoretical and practical elements of intercultural teaching have been expanded in recent years, but this progress is quite slow. This article provides some directions in which the textbooks can be revised. Such an analysis may be of interest to textbook writers and educators.
