Title:What Can the Study of Information Do to Genre Studies?
Author(s):Andersen, Jack; Foscarini, Fiorella; MacNeil, Heather; Mak, Bonnie; McKenzie, Pamela J.; Skouvig, Laura
Subject(s):genre theory
information studies
Abstract:Genre theory has in recent years entered the study of information (Andersen, 2008). The question remains whether we in the information field have made our own independent contributions to genre theory, not only `applying' genre theory. From 6 different positions, this workshop will discuss the role and potential of genre studies in the study of information and what the study of information can contribute with to the study of genre. Coming from universities in North America and Denmark, the panelists will each present a perspective or argument. Each perspective or argument is developed around the question what the study of information can contribute with to the study of genre.
