Academic Discourse Socialization: Case Study on Multilingual Learners examines academic literacy development. Yutaka Fujieda draws on literacy autobiographies, reflective journals, final narratives, blog posts on Moodle, and individual and focus group interviews with multilingual students in a mandatory research seminar course to unpack their processes, experiences, and practices of academic literacy and academic identity construction. Fujieda argues that multilingual students’ academic identities are co-constructed via various roles and a sense of belonging to the discourse community.
Yutaka Fujieda is professor in the Department of International Social Studies at Kyoai Gakuen University.
