Privatised academic writing
Reflections on access, knowledge, and policy
Keywords:Privitisation, Academic Literacies, Knowledge, Education, Policy
This dialogue responds to Neculai (2018) and argues for the need to recognise the character of academic literacies development and the policies governing that development as always emergent. It also reflects on the contributions that all, including students, make toward that development through their written work, as opposed to accepting the treatment of academic literacies development as a commodity to which access is given.
