Meeting Description:

Increasingly, scholars and researchers must acquire and maximize developing professional and discursive practices in relation to emerging forms of digital communication. This process generally involves a number of adaptations, such as a more active and personal role of the researchers in the process of communication of results, their current aim to reach multiple audiences and the need to master the genres, uses and conventions associated with specific platforms and online environments.

We would like to trace and analyse these trends related to the digital communication of science and explore their area of confluence. More specifically, the InterGedi2021 online conference aims at gathering current research on the practices related to the construction of digital identity and visibility, the emerging conflicts related to the public availability and appropriation of scientific culture and the ways of validating and disseminating scientific knowledge in this new context.

InterGedi 2021 invites to submit proposals in the following areas:

1. Reconceptualization of genre(s) in scholarly and scientific digital practices
2. Discursive, Multimodal, and Pragmatic studies of identity and visibility in web-mediated texts
3. Promotion of public engagement in a participatory scientific culture
4. Scientific knowledge dissemination through social media
5. From popularization to vulgarization of science: implications of the dissemination of non-validated knowledge

Plenary speakers: Prof. Vijay Bhatia (UNiversity of Hong Kong, China) and Prof. Jan Engberg (University of Aarhus, Denmark)
