Gengre-based Pedagogy and Disciplinary Enculturation

Radim Hladík



The review article analyzes a collective monograph edited by Charles Bazerman, Adaira Bonini, and Débora Figueiredo, Genre in a Changing World (Fort Collins - West Lafayette: WAC Clearing House - Parlor Press 2009). It focuses on top- ics relevant to the significance of gen- res in scientific and academic practice and identifies namely two concomi- tant areas that have been in the centre of attention of scholarly studies using genre as an analytical concept: genre-based pedagogies at university level and disciplinary enculturation. While the first area deals with establishment of boundaries between academic texts and other textual forms, the latter one addresses their internal differen- tiation. The review article emphasizes the demonstrated value of genre- oriented approaches for the research on scientific practices, yet it concludes that there is a need for more thorough appreciation of their epistemological implications.
