Letras – Special Issue 2 - 2020
Theme: Academic literacy: pedagogical practices in times of internationalization
Scope of the Special Issue:
The aim of this special issue of Letras is to bring together papers about academic literacy, mainly in English. The development of academic literacy in this additional language has been urged by the internationalization of higher education movement, which has pressured academics to increase interaction with international institutions. In the context of the initiatives of universities to promote academic literacy and to overcome obstacles, it becomes relevant to discuss aspects related to academic literacy socialization and pedagogy, especially in the field of Applied Linguistics. This special issue gives preference to (but is not restricted to) the works presented at the Thematic Symposium titledAcademic literacy in English: pedagogical practices in times of internationalization, that was part of the X International Symposium of Genre Studies (SIGET), held in Córdoba, in September 2019. Therefore, we invite papers in the field of academic literacy in association with the concepts of genre (Swales, 2004); social practices (Lillis; Curry, 2010); autonomous and ideological models of literacy (Street, 1984); or the generalist perspective (Spack, 1988) or specific perspective (Hyland,2002) and related to at least one of the following topics:
- pedagogical experiences to promote academic literacy in higher education;
- undergraduate/postgraduate students’ academic literacy learning process;
- academic genres and internationalization;
- critical perspectives in language teaching for internationalization;
- critical socialization to academic literacy and the process of internationalization;
- language policy, academic literacy, and internationalization;
- English as international language in the Brazilian higher education;
- English as the lingua franca of science and challenges to Brazilian scientific publication;
- Languages without Borders and internationalization: policies, actions, pedagogical experiences;
- scientific publication in English: conventions and challenges in the context of internationalization;
- challenges to promote academic literacy in higher education;
- undergraduate /postgraduate students’ reactions to the conventions of the international publication;
- academic writing and/or reading and internationalization;
