About the Author

Dr Caroline Coffin is Senior Lecturer in the Centre for Language and Communication at the Open University, UK.


"This book makes a major contribution to the study of historical discourse and while it will be of interest to teachers of history, it will in addition be of considerable interest to those who work in discourse studies generally- linguists, applied linguists and educational linguists." Frances Christie, Emeritus Professor, University of Melbourne and Honorary Professor, University of Sydney 'Coffin's Historical Discourse provides a systematic, informative and insightful description of the nature of historical discourse, it's function and role, and of its pedagogic potential in the context of secondary schools... Historical Discourse is an exceptionally well-written book that expounds on the role of language in learnning and teaching history. It offers a systematic and comprehensive account of a rich array of language resources that are critical to success in history and provides valuable insights into the nature of, and the teaching and learning of historical discourse' Honglin Chen, Faculty of Education, University of Wollongong, Australia"
