Academic Emailing in English: Effective and Affective Approaches


  • Have you ever struggled with writing important emails?
  • Do your emails reflect your professional persona?
  • Are you familiar with the expectations of emails in the Anglo-American academic culture?


This workshop on academic emails focuses on a range of strategies for writing clear, effective and professional emails. The areas we will be looking at include:

  • The expected level of formality in emails 
  • The 'moves' of an effective email
  • Coming across as 'human' in your emails but without losing professionality and impact

These and other issues will be dealt with in this 90-minute, informal workshop, investigating the English of emails from both a socio-cultural and a linguistic perspective.


Next session:   Date:   Wednesday 21 November 2018

                        Time:   11.00-12.30

                        Room:  Convento, Grice

In order to make this as relevant as possible to your own situation, you will be asked to describe your experience of a problematic situation involving an email/exchange of emails.
