Authorial Presence in English Academic Texts

This book presents a case study of student-writers from multiple cultural and academic backgrounds. It investigates how writing, as an act of identity, can be analyzed along an axis of individual and social influences. This continuum entails a number of related perspectives, including the ways in which individuals reproduce or challenge dominant literary practices and discourses, and how they occupy the subject positions made available in their discourse communities. The analysis of the findings draws on selected socio-semiotic and more broadly, anthropological views of language, which are then synthesized into a multi-aspect model of academic writer identity.
"Lehman's book is timely and fills a gap, and it will be a welcome complement to the small body of literature in the area of authorial self-representation in academic texts. For any scholar seeking to better understand the provenance and development of L2 writers' authorial voice, the book is necessary reading."
(Simon Williams, Journal of Second Language Writing 42/2018)
The book outlines the influences on academic, authorial self-representation in English as a second language. It explores how writer identity is negotiated within socio-cultural and disciplinary contexts. This collective aspect of writer self is formed alongside the individual self with the emergent voice as outcome of the struggle between the two.
