Academic and professional discourse

Macquarie University has been a leader in researching academic and professional discourse for a number of years. Using a wide variety of tools available to us as linguists we investigate the discourse used by professionals across a range of contexts. These include:

  • Academic culture
  • Academic literacies across the curriculum
  • Communication in science
  • Communication in organisations
  • Professional communication in healthcare, accountancy, teaching and financial planning
