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.

Scholarship, discourse on scholarship, scholarly discourse

Abstract

Scholarship, discourse on scholarship, and scholarly discourse depend on their intellectual ambience: a set of ontological-epistemological and axiological-praxeological convictions influencing researchers’ practices. Contemporary intellectual ambience is characterized, inter alia, by the recognition of the erosion of the ideal of modern science. Through the influence it exerts on linguists, it results with the dominance of (neo)functionalism and of the communication-cultural and cognitivist paradigms in linguistics.
