Title: Genre Change in the Contemporary World
Subtitle: Short-term Diachronic Perspectives
Edited By: Giuliana Garzone

Series Title: Linguistic Insights - Volume 159
Description:

This volume focuses on the evolution of genres in specialized communication under the pressure of technological innovations and the profound social changes triggered by globalization in the contemporary world, in a context where rapid and extensive changes in communicative practices, patterns and technologies have deeply affected the generic configuration of professional and disciplinary domains. These developments call for a reconsideration of the repertoires of conventions traditionally identified in each specific genre as well as for a reassessment of the analytical tools used to investigate them, about three decades after the emergence of genre analysis.
