Abstract

This chapter has three key aims. The first is to discuss Academic Literacies as a particular orientation to writing and writing pedagogy in terms of epistemology, ideology and methodology and to summarise the key contributions of such an approach to date. The second aim is to explicitly situate the motivation, epistemology and ideology of Academic Literacies within its specific geohistorical context of articulation, in order to critically explore, rather than assume, any points of potential translocal relevance. The third aim is to open up dialogue around the linguistic resources used for academic knowledge making—in this case in transnational discussions of reading and writing in the academy—by using two languages in this paper, Spanish and English. The paper seeks to underline the intellectual value of harnessing multiple language/rhetorical resources to the exploration of literacy-related phenomena, as well signalling their value towards building a more egalitarian transnational dialogue.
