Globalization ‘from below’ As already stated, academic writing for publication cannot fail to be located and positioned globally within a global knowledge economy and a global economy of signs (Blommaert 2005). The approach in this book, in line with NLS and academic literacy/ies research more generally, is to adopt an ethnographic approach, focusing on scholars’ practices and experiences by drawing on a range of data sources collected and examined over an extended period of time. A range of data from the PAW study is used across the chapters in this book to illustrate what’s involved in the politics and practices of academic text production; it includes extracts from discussions with scholars, extracts from texts they have written, detailed accounts of the trajectories of their texts towards publication (including stories of rejection and acceptance), correspondence between authors, reviewers and editors, and official departmental and national documentation.
