Starting from a set of different approaches to academic discourse as a field of research, the Centre aims to collect and analyse different kinds of data that can be gathered in studying academic writing.  

Textual and contextual elements are taken into consideration, together with their contribution to the objectives that characterize different approaches to academic discourse studies and academic literacy studies. Special attention is paid to corpus-based approaches and corpus building.  

Research will develop alongside teaching activities and aims to: 

  • inform and develop the pedagogies of academic writing 
  • make connections between the theories and practices of academic writing 
  • contribute to current debates in the interdisciplinary field of academic writing 
  • monitor and evaluate the activities of the Centre.
