Geoffrey Nunberg


Geoffrey Nunberg says, “The language of every discipline foregrounds some things and marginalizes others.” You
are in the process of becoming a member of the discourse community of your academic discipline. How will you learn
to speak and write like the other members of that community? What do they foreground and what do they marginalize?
In this essay please analyze the language and culture of your discourse community. You will need to get
information from sources. Cite your sources explicitly, perhaps using suggestions from Graff, Birkenstein, and
Durst. In what ways is your area of concentration similar to other academic disciplines? In what ways is it
different? What are the expectations about reading and writing? Speculate about the academic work that you will
do over the next few years. Explain how this will prepare you for your future career. Include some discussion of
Nunberg’s ideas.
