Beginning from the premise that all academic writing is conversational -- a collegial exchange of ideas, undertaken in a spirit of collaboration in the pursuit of new knowledge -- From Inquiry to Academic Writing demystifies cross-curricular thinking and writing by breaking it down into a series of comprehensible habits and skills that students can learn in order to enter those conversations. The second part of the book provides a sampling of those conversations in a thematic reader that reprints substantial essays by intellectuals both inside and outside the university. By equipping students with the tools they need to think and write academically, and prompting them to respond to readings that explore profound issues and ideas, From Inquiry to Academic Writing emboldens students to contribute to important cultural conversations they will encounter in college and beyond.
