My area of research interest is the application of genre theory to investigations of non-fictional texts and their related discourses. I have undertaken studies of academic, business and journalistic genres. My research of academic genres has the purpose of informing language curriculum development and the teaching of academic writing, and specifically research writing, to students for whom English is an additional language.The theoretical basis that I propose for analysing and teaching academic genres are outlined in my book publications (2008 & 2011) and the related research studies - books at Ian Bruce, Amazon author page and citations here.
