Sci­ence Com­mu­ni­ca­tion on the Inter­net: Old gen­res meet new gen­res
BuchcoverThis book exam­ines the expand­ing world of gen­res on the Inter­net to under­stand issues of sci­ence com­mu­ni­ca­tion today. The book explores how some tra­di­tion­al print gen­res have become dig­i­tal, how some gen­res have evolved into new dig­i­tal hybrids, and how and why new gen­res have emerged and are emerg­ing in response to new rhetor­i­cal exi­gences and com­mu­nica­tive demands. Because social actions are in con­stant change and, ensu­ing from this, gen­res evolve faster than ever, it is impor­tant to gain insight into the inter­re­la­tions between old gen­res and new gen­res and the process­es under­pin­ning the con­struc­tion of new genre sets, chains and assem­blages for com­mu­ni­cat­ing sci­en­tif­ic research to both expert and diver­si­fied audi­ences. In exam­in­ing sci­en­tif­ic gen­res on the Inter­net this book seeks to illus­trate the increas­ing diver­si­fi­ca­tion of genre ecolo­gies and their under­ly­ing social, dis­ci­pli­nary and indi­vid­ual agen­das.

Self-reflec­tion in lit­er­a­ture
BuchcoverSelf-reflec­tion is fun­da­men­tal for human think­ing on many lev­els. Phi­los­o­phy has described the mind’s capac­i­ty to observe itself as a core ele­ment of human exis­tence. Polit­i­cal and social sci­ences have shown how mod­ern democ­ra­cies depend on society’s abil­i­ty to crit­i­cal­ly reflect on their own val­ues and prac­tices. And lit­er­a­ture of all ages has proven self-reflex­iv­i­ty to be a cru­cial trait of cul­tur­al pro­duc­tion.
This vol­ume pro­vides the first diachron­ic panora­ma of gen­res, forms, and func­tions of lit­er­ary self-reflec­tion and their con­nec­tions with social, polit­i­cal and philo­soph­i­cal dis­cours­es from the 17th cen­tu­ry to the present. Far beyond the usu­al focus on post­mod­ernist opac­i­ty, these con­tri­bu­tions present a rich tra­di­tion of crit­i­cal trans­paren­cy: Lit­er­ary texts that show us what is behind and beyond them.
