Book Description

This volume; Emerging Genres in New Media Environments (PDF) explores cultural innovation and transformation as revealed through the emergence of new media genres. New media have enabled what impresses most observers as a dizzying proliferation of new forms of communicative interaction and cultural production; provoking multimodal experimentation; and artistic and entrepreneurial innovation. Working with the concept of genre; scholars in multiple fields have begun to explore these processes of emergence; innovation; and stabilization. Genre has thus become newly important in library and information science; game studies; film and media studies; applied linguistics; rhetoric; literature; and elsewhere. Understood as social recognitions that embed ideologies; histories; and contradictions; genres function as recurrent social actions; helping to constitute culture. Because genres are dynamic sites of tension between stability and change; they are also sites of inventive potential. Emerging Genres in New Media Environments brings together compelling papers from scholars in Brazil; Canada; England; and the United States to illustrate how this inventive potential has been harnessed around the world.
