Why do engineers "report" while philosophers "argue" and biologists "describe"? In the Michigan Classics Edition of Disciplinary Discourses: Social Interactions in AcademicWriting, Ken Hyland examines the relationships between the cultures of academic communities and their unique discourses. Drawing on discourse analysis, corpus linguistics, and the voices of professional insiders, Ken Hyland explores how academics use language to organize their professional lives, carry out intellectual tasks, and reach agreement on what will count as knowledge. In addition, Disciplinary Discourses presents a useful framework for understanding the interactions between writers and their readers in published academic writing. From this framework, Hyland provides practical teaching suggestions and points out opportunities for further research within the subject area. As issues of linguistic and rhetorical expression of disciplinary conventions are becoming more central to teachers, students, and researchers, the careful analysis and straightforward style of Disciplinary Discourses make it a remarkable asset. The Michigan Classics Edition features a new preface by the author and a new foreword by John M. Swales.

An engaging, advanced-level introduction to the emerging field of discourse studies of identity, with particular reference to academic contexts. Disciplinary Identities uses findings from corpus research to present fascinating insights into the relationship between author identity and disciplinarity in academic writing. Ken Hyland draws on a number of sources to explore how authors convey aspects of their identities within the constraints placed upon them by their disciplines' rhetorical conventions. He promotes corpus methods as important tools in identity research, demonstrating the effectiveness of keyword and collocation analysis in highlighting both the norms of a particular genre and an author's idiosyncratic choices. Also available separately as a paperback.

As graduate school enrollments increase across the United States, professors from most disciplines lament these students lack writing skills. Previous studies on graduate student writing have stated that students are underprepared to write in their programs and have offered several suggestions for remediating these skills: writing seminars, introductory writing classes, increased faculty feedback, and writing checklists. Most of these studies are based on the perspectives of professors, who act as gatekeepers to determine who is considered an expert in a field. Few studies have addressed how writing centers can help graduate students as emerging experts. Using surveys, document analysis, and case studies, the current study gathered data on graduate students' perspectives of their writing preparedness and confidence. In addition, the study looked at how these students perceived the writing support they receive in their programs, what types of documents they needed help writing, and why they used the services of a writing center. Finally, case studies on three doctoral students revealed how a tutor helped graduate students who used the writing center. Contrary to previous studies, the current study found that graduate students do not view themselves as underprepared to write at the graduate level. On surveys, they expressed a high level of confidence in their writing skills. Regardless of this confidence, these students still wanted to work with a tutor in the writing center. While some graduate students used the writing center to fulfill a course requirement or a professor's expectation, most found the writing center helped offset the isolation they felt and provided a ready and eager audience for their ideas. In addition, there is some evidence that the writing center helped graduate students rehearse their roles as experts (Leverenz, 2001) and participate in their disciplinary discourse at the passing, procedural, and deep levels (Prior, 1998).
