The importance of technology in language and our lives is unquestionable, but is this really a good change? Is it changing the way we communicate with other people by the creation of a new communicative mode (apart from spoken and written language)?
Web 2.0 has brought about dramatic changes in the transmission and dissemination of science, facilitating the communication between scientists and also with non-specialized audiences. Digital affordances facilitate the emergence of hybrid genres and the combination of genres to form complex generic assemblages (genre sets, genre systems and genre ecologies) to communicate science to diversified audiences. In this context, this project seeks to respond to the problematization of the traditional concept of genre and explore the use of genre repertoires to communicate science openly on the Internet. Our purpose is to identify the intertextual relationships in the new combinations of genres afforded by the digital environments, paying special attention to processes of generic innovation through the use of multimodal elements, and processes of generic hybridization, and appropriation of non-scientific discourses.
