Genre(s) on the Move: Hybridization and Discourse Change in Specialized Communication is the result of a government-funded research programme of national interest (PRIN) titled Tension and Change in English Domain-specific Genres, involving research teams from five Italian Universities: Bergamo, Milano, Napoli Federico II, Roma "Foro Italico" IUSM and Torino. All contributors in this volume analyze specialized genres in private and public as well as professional and institutional domains. The overall focus is genre hybridization across time and space (inclusive of resistance and creativity) and the coherence across the volume is achieved through the acknowledgement of contemporary socio-discursive practices, especially new technologies, globalization, multimodal representation and role-relations.
