Along with global growth in the use of English for academic, research, and publication purposes, there has been a significant increase in the number of higher education institutions adopting English as a medium of instruction. The increased number of courses taught through English medium instruction (EMI) globally has led to calls within the EMI literature for increased academic language and literacy provision to support students and staff. However, some of the EMI literature has drawn little on English for Academic Purposes (EAP), which provides decades of research relevant to supporting students’ academic language and literacy development.

In this seminar, Angela Hakim will explore areas for which there is great potential for cross-fertilisation between the EMI and EAP literature and outline prospective future research directions.
