Abstract:

What makes academic disciplines different from each other? How do these
differences affect the way they create and transmit different forms of
knowledge? What makes them different from everyday discourse?  This book
tackles these important questions, exploring the nature of knowledge,
language and pedagogy in a genuinely transdisciplinary dialogue between
systemic functional linguistics and the sociology of Basil Bernstein.  The
central focus of this cutting edge endeavour is the structure and
transmission of academic and educational knowledge: how different
disciplines are created, transformed and taught in institutional settings.
 An international consortium of functional linguists and Bernsteinian
sociologists examine the nature of knowledge, the genesis of knowledge
forms in early childhood, and the organization of academic subjects,
including English, mathematics, social science and natural science. The
result is a timely and original analysis of knowledge structures at work in
educational institutions. Language, Knowledge and Pedagogy makes a major
contribution to linguistics, applied linguistics, sociology and educational
theory. It will be of interest to researchers and students working in all
these areas.
