Academic writing style and conventions

What is academic writing like? Why can’t I say ‘I’ or state my opinions? What is cautious ‘hedging’ language? This class will cover the academic conventions of formality, neutral tone, cautious language and ways to avoid saying ‘I’, including work on the ‘passive voice’ to express objectivity. This workshop is aimed at students who are new to academic writing in English, or who would like a refresher after a long break in studying.
