EAP in a Globalizing World: English as an Academic Lingua Franca

This volume consists of a selection of papers presented at the Biennial Conference of the British Association of Lecturers in English for Academic Purposes (BALEAP), held at the University of Durham in the UK in 2007. Reflecting the theme of the conference, this volume considers English for Academic Purposes (EAP) in the context of English as an international language. Some of the papers directly address the notion of an academic lingua franca. Others look at EAP as it exists in the global context. At the heart of all the papers is a commitment to EAP competence.
