Genres and media landscapes in virtual-physical learning spaces. Moving frontlines?
International conference of the CCD network, School of Education and Communication, Jönköping University, 12-14 September 2018
The international conference Genres and media landscapes in virtual-physical learning spaces. Moving frontlines? GeM 2018, aims to create a multi-disciplinary platform for dialoguing on the every-day uses of modality rich, parallel, linked, and hybrid, communicative genres that are embedded in media landscapes and circulate in learning spaces inside and outside institutional settings.
The digitized era and the global world of mobility and migration have brought about a shift for human-beings in general and the research enterprise more specifically, thus, making it necessary to (re)consider conditions for communication or languaging as well as for learning and identity production.
Today, analogue and digital dimensions are seen as being blurred and interdependent, just as accumulation, density and change, are fundamental features of media landscapes. Genres for representation and communication are created, renewed, transformed and fluid in these flexible and expanding environments and times.
