  • 1.  
  • 2. Discourse community These common goals are what define and bind a socio-rhetorical network, and are expressed in a shared communicative purpose . “ socio-rhetorical networks that form in order to work towards sets of common goals” (Swales, 9)
  • 3. Culture: discourse and power
    • Culture includes characteristics, taboos, boundaries, relationships that identifies what is officially sanctioned.
    • Being able to use the appropriate discourse equals power.
    • Those who do not pass as a “native” in the journals discourse cultures tend to be considered outsiders, and are therefore denied power.
    • As a result these outside knowledge-producers are excluded, in spite of the quality, importance, relevance or rigor of their research and writing.
  • 4. Logodiversity
    • Geopolitics of knowledge: discursive diversity is vital as it is the expression of heterogeneous knowledge production.
    • Emphasis on linguistic diversity, not only in the sense of idiomatic variety, but also in different styles of academic writing or models of argumentation.
    • The dominance of a single language, in this case English, is a threat to the fluidity and the complexity of global knowledge.
  • 5. Logodiversity
    • Need for linguistic heterogeneity and diversity in ways of reasoning.
    • Irreplaceable role of situated/local knowledge in crafting viable solutions to local problems.
    • Importance of global dialogue.
  • 6. Types of barriers (1) Immediate barriers , which include the level of academic English, argumentative style, and register of written language. (2) Ongoing barriers , which are expressed on a macro-structural level and are reflected in the ideology which permeates the discourse community involved. “ Ideologies are representations of aspects of the world which can be shown to contribute to establishing, maintaining and changing social relations of power, domination and exploitation ” (Fairclough, 9).
  • 7. First barrier: the preeminence of English The role of English “entails that the coming generation of the world’s researchers and scholars need – with relatively few exceptions in the arts and the humanities- to have more adecquate skills in the English language if that generation is to make its way without linguistic disadvantage in its chosen world.” (Swales 1990, 10)
  • 8. Second barrier: lack of locally-produced knowledge
  • 9. Third Barrier: Isolation
    • Isolation as a silent barrier
    • Individuals must participate as writers and readers
    • Role of technology in overcoming this barrier
  • 10. Role of editors and journals
    • Editors and peer reviewers yield power.
    • Journals can become a center that attracts critical knowledge and that can empower the greater community.
  • 11. Role of editors and journals
  • 12.
