Genre studies and genre approaches to literacy instruction continue to develop in many regions and from a widening variety of approaches. Genre has provided a key to understanding the varying literacy cultures of regions, disciplines, professions, and educational settings. GENRE IN A CHANGING WORLD provides a wide-ranging sampler of the remarkable variety of current work. The twenty-four chapters in this volume, reflecting the work of scholars in Europe, Australasia, and North and South America, were selected from the over 400 presentations at SIGET IV (the Fourth International Symposium on Genre Studies) held on the campus of UNISUL in Tubarão, Santa Catarina, Brazil in August 2007—the largest gathering on genre to that date. The chapters also represent a wide variety of approaches, including rhetoric, Systemic Functional Linguistics, media and critical cultural studies, sociology, phenomenology, enunciation theory, the Geneva school of educational sequences, cognitive psychology, relevance theory, sociocultural psychology, activity theory, Gestalt psychology, and schema theory. Sections are devoted to theoretical issues, studies of genres in the professions, studies of genre and media, teaching and learning genre, and writing across the curriculum. The broad selection of material in this volume displays the full range of contemporary genre studies and sets the ground for a next generation of work.

This volume includes thirteen papers presented at the 16th Conference on British and American Studies held at Transilvania University of Brașov, Romania. It consists of three main parts, the first of which includes contributions falling within the scope of communication and meaning-making. The articles gathered here consider issues such as social identity and the construction of gender both in and through language, and the rendition of cultural content across languages. The second section takes a closer look at language in context: the contributions included here approach language as a means to encode and decode the reality around us, whether in media discourse, academic contexts, fictional literature or bilingual dictionaries. The research strand in the third part of the volume relates to the lexico-grammatical specificities of natural languages. The focus of attention here is Romanian, with some of its structural particularities set against those present in other languages.

This book takes a fresh look at the basic idea of 'literacy' and proposes some new definitions to take us into the twenty- first century. It brings together nine Australian scholars of distinction. They argue that schools must teach explicitly the nature of language, and that students must be given clear criteria for, and support in achieving, excellence in controlling the different types of written language used in their various fields of study. Teachers need a clear sense of the changing nature of literacy, of the differences between speech and writing, and of the characterstic patterns of discourse used in the school subjects they teach. The arguments about literacy are made using examples selected from students' writing and textbooks, and demonstrate in a pleasing way the benefit to education of some selected linguistic research. This book is essential reading for educational policy makers and curriculum writers, as well as for teachers of all levels and disciplines.

This book focuses on the theories and practices for analysing and recording the vast range of small historic buildings that constitute the core element of Britain's built landscape. It examines what has been done and what still needs to be achieved to preserve and understand our architectural heritage. Chapters explore the historic context of the discipline, the significant increase in the amount and type of building recording following new government policy guidance procedures, the necessity for informed conservation to rest on detailed understanding of particular buildings, the problems encountered by professional consultants, the development of new research techniques and applications, education, the role of voluntary recorders, and the pressing needs to better storage and access for records.
