Charles Bazerman: Intersections of Genre, Intertextuality, and Evidence in Academic Writing: Textual, Historical, Social, Cognitive, Theoretical, and Pedagogical

Date: 11 June 2013 Time: 1 - 2 pm

Venue: Cavendish Colloquium, Faraday Building

The Literacy Research Discussion Group is pleased to welcome Charles Bazerman (University of California, Santa Barbara) who will be talking on:

Intersections of Genre, Intertextuality, and Evidence in Academic Writing: Textual, Historical, Social, Cognitive, Theoretical, and Pedagogical

In my historical, social, and textual research on scientific and academic writing genre has been a central organizing concept, but within that the production display and use of evidence and the positioning of texts within intertextual systems have been important components, crucial to persuasion and coordination within activity systems and the accomplishment of communal goals. The same triumvirate of genre, intertextuality and evidence have emerged as central to my teaching of academic writing (reflected in my textbooks) as well as my theorizing about the nature of genre and activity systems in writing (reflected in my forthcoming theory volumes). A recent set of studies of cognition I have participated in also indicate that these same three elements contribute to cognitive growth of individual writers. In this talk I will explore the implications of this intersection of these same three factors across multiple perspectives.

Please note the change of venue: Faraday Building, Cavendish Colloquium.
