Call for Papers for a Special Issue of ESP Today
(http://www.esptodayjournal.org/)

Current Research and Practice in Teaching 
Disciplinary Literacies

Guest Editors:
Zuocheng Zhang, University of New England, Australia
Eveline Chan, University of New England, Australia 

This special issue of ESP Today concerns the teaching of disciplinary
literacies in tertiary ESP settings. ESP involves research and practice in the
teaching and learning of English to prepare learners for competent performance
in various workplace and academic situations (Dudley-Evans & St John, 1998).

Disciplinary literacy is a key part of such learning given that it addresses
discipline-specific speaking, listening to, reading, writing, and viewing of
verbal, non-verbal, and multimodal texts. It equips learners with the tools
for both functioning in various target performance situations and reflecting
on their performance and themselves in relation to the target performance
situations of various kinds. Through developing disciplinary literacies,
learners are equipped with the tools and resources for producing and receiving
texts in their disciplines and constructing a professional identity. 

The special issue of ESP Today is intended to stimulate dialogue between
discipline experts, subject specialists, ESP practitioners, and literacy
educators by highlighting the complementarity between them in identifying and
teaching disciplinary literacies. 

The special issue of ESP Today welcomes contributions on the following topics:

- Theoretical perspectives on disciplinary literacies
- Wide-angle and narrow-angle approaches to designing disciplinary literacies
programmes
- ESP and CLIL approaches to teaching literacies in specific disciplines
- Dialogues between discipline experts, subject specialists, ESP
practitioners, and literacy educators on disciplinary literacies
- Transition from secondary to tertiary disciplinary literacies teaching
- Critical literacies
- Multimodal literacies
- Other relevant topics

Abstracts of 300 words in length (excluding references), clearly outlining the
scope of research, methodology, and expected results, should be submitted by 1
January 2017 to both Zuocheng Zhang (zzhang26 at une.edu.au) and Eveline Chan
