Meeting Description:

Seminar 68 - 'Evolving genres and genre theory: focus on specialized
communication in English across contexts and media'

Giuliana Garzone, University of Milan, Department of Contemporary Languages and
Cultures (Italy)
Cornelia Ilie, Örebru University, Södertön College (Sweden)

Call for Papers

In recent years discursive practices and textual conventions in specialized
communication have evolved rapidly, being deeply affected by a number of
factors, first and foremost globalization and the spread of new media and
technologies. In light of these considerations, this seminar has a twofold
purpose. First, it intends to study the evolution over time of traditional
genres and analyse the constitutive characteristics of new emerging genres (e.g.
mixed/hybrid genres in the fields of edutainment, digital audio-visual
communication - blogs, home pages, etc.), correlating the features thus
identified with contextual and functional factors. Secondly, it intends to
verify whether these elements of evolution require an updating of the analytical
instruments available within the framework of genre analysis over two decades
after its emergence, also evaluating a possible conceptual impact of such
updating on genre theory.

We invite 200-words abstracts on all aspects of genre theory and genre
evolution, to be submitted in Word format and sent to both seminar convenors by
31 January 2010:
Giuliana Garzone, giuliana.garzoneunimi.it
Cornelia Ilie, cornelia.iliegmail.com.
Acceptance notification deadline: 28 February 2010

Please note that authors of seminar papers will be expected to give an oral
presentation of not more than 15 minutes' duration, rather than simply reading
their papers aloud, to be followed by extensive discussion.
