Kostouli, Triantafillia (Ed.)

The premise that writing is a socially-situated act of interaction
between readers and writers is well established. This volume first,
corroborates this premise by citing pertinent evidence, through the
analysis of written texts and interactive writing contexts, and from
educational settings across different cultures from which we have scant
evidence. Secondly, all chapters, though addressing the social nature of
writing, propose a variety of perspectives, making the volume
multidisciplinary in nature. Finally, this volume accounts for the
diversity of the research perspectives each chapter proposes by
situating the plurality of terminological issues and methodologies into
a more integrative framework. Thus a coherent overall framework is
created within which different research strands (i.e., the
sociocognitive, sociolinguistic research, composition work, genre
analysis) and pedagogical practices developed on L1 and L2 writing can
be situated and acquire meaning.

This volume will be of particular interest to researchers in the areas
of language and literacy education in L1 and L2, applied linguists
interested in school, and academic contexts of writing, teacher
educators and graduate students working in the fields of L1 and L2
