Postseminarium följer direkt efter seminariet i institutionens pentry.

The development of digital technologies has resulted in the emergence of new academic genres and discourses. This talk focuses on research blogs, wikis, and tweets in different disciplines. I will start by providing an overview of their development and discussing critical issues raised in the applied linguistics literature. For example, one controversial issue in the study of research blogs is whether they can be seen as a genre (e.g. Myers 2010, Mauranen 2013, Luzón 2011). Another issue in the study of online academic discourse is how the uncertainty of the target discourse community affects register features. I will discuss how both quantitative (e.g. corpus analysis) and qualitative methods have been used in different studies of online academic discourse and will illustrate current methodological concerns with examples from an on-going project on the discourse of research blogs.
