LRDG Seminar: 'Intercontextuality' & 'Recontextualisation' in Learning and Teaching Argumentation

Date: 2 May 2006 Time: 12.50 - 2.15 pm

Speaker: Lydia Tseng, Lancaster UniversityIn this presentation, I explore the learning and teaching of argumentation in an EFL writing class. The notion of 'intercontextuality' is applied to trace the relationship between speaking and writing in the learning-teaching of argumentation.Drawing upon Bernstein's notion of 'recontextualisation' (1990,1996), I illustrate how various elements of social practices from pedagogic and non-pedagogic contexts are selected and relocated in the learning-teaching of argumentation. This analysis reveals how opportunities for the learning of argumentative writing are created and regulated.Everyone welcome.
