Postscript: Futures for Genre Studies
Each chapter in the book has advanced different key issues for genre theory. Increasingly interdisciplinary, genre theory promises to be an important critical theory for exploring new media environments. The rhetorical, linguistic, and semiotic grounding of many of these perspectives offers a fresh import to new media studies by way of their consideration of situated and rhetorical language, discourse, and argument. This short postscript brings together the chapters’ contributions to chart future avenues for genre research.
