Abstract: Genre analyses and contrastive rhetoric studies have dealt with
quite a number of genres of writing. However genre analysts and contrastive
rhetoric researchers have not carried out adequate analyses of doctoral prospectuses.
This paper will subsequently address this issue by analyzing a
genre of texts of doctoral prospectuses. The analysis will be focused on the
sub-genre of Background of the Study of the prospectuses. Limitations of
accessibility however have led this study to only focus on analyzing fourteen
doctoral prospectuses written in English by Indonesian students of EFL
accessible from the Graduate Program State University of Malang Indonesia.
This situation suggests that the present study is preliminary. Preliminary
notwithstanding the study will contribute to filling the gap of the underresearched
issue of doctoral studies in Indonesia particularly those pertinent
to the area of ELT. The analysis shows a tendency that the texts of Background
of the Study do not show research spaces. Relevant to this the article
provides an interpretive explanation of the possible factors attributable to
this issue.
