Academic (Inter)genres: between Texts, Contexts and Identities

Series:

Edited By Anna Duszak and Grzegorz Kowalski

The volume takes a close look at discourse perspectives on academic genres. In the context of scientific communication and the evolution of postmodern culture and society, academic genres have undergone various changes. The study shows that cultural heterogeneity of academic genres, styles and discourses now gives way to an increasing hybridization and discusses theoretical aspects of this process. The second part focuses on specific dimensions of hybridization, in particular between global and local academic genres and discourses, and between real and virtual ones.

Audiovisual scientific text for self-directed Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL)

Abstract

In this paper we present a range of audiovisual tools which enable foreign language learners to foster their linguistic skills and acquire new knowledge about the world in non-institutionalised settings, such as online media. We discuss CLIL as a way to independent content-learning through languages other than mother tongue on the example of an online platform developed as part of the ClipFlair project.
