Abstract:

This book critically explores academic interdisciplinarity, a relatively new area 
of student writing in our contemporary contexts, from different perspectives: 
disciplinary integration, generically diverse assessment tasks, linguistic 
capital, pedagogical practices, extra-disciplinarity, pedagogic desire, 
curricular issues, and socio-economic imperatives. Dr Chandrasoma's work 
also offers a comprehensive study of how student writers grapple with 
interdisciplinary knowledge in the academy.

Since almost every discipline has crossed its boundaries, student writing has 
become a more complex and intricate academic exercise as has never been 
before. Dr Chandrasoma emphasizes the need for knowledge for specific 
purposes programs peripheral to the currently used English for specific 
purposes programs in universities in order to enculturate novice student 
writers into the new culture of interdisciplinary integration..  
 
The seminal work proposes critical interdisciplinarity as a sustainable 
pedagogical practice to cope with a plethora of difficulties encountered by 
student writers at various stages of constructing their texts. The book meets 
a long felt need as evidenced by the paucity of literature on interdisciplinary 
studies in particular reference to student writing.

Hence this book is an asset for language teachers, academic support 
advisors, curriculum developers, researchers and student writers. The book 
will also serve as an invaluable resource for various programs where 
academic literacies are vital. In particular it lends itself to programs such as 
foundation studies, developmental education, and interdisciplinary studies 
both at graduate and postgraduate levels in universities and colleges.
