Come Join us in Florianopolis, Brazil for the next Genre conference

4th International Symposium on Genre Studies - SIGET

Florianópolis-SC, Brazil
August, 15th-17 th, 2007


The large and active Brazilian genre research community invites the 
international genre research community to join in  SIGET IV.   We invite 
genre researchers from around the world to see this as the next 
manifestation of the spontaneous series of genre conferences in Ottawa, 
Vancouver, and Oslo, and at the same time as a chance to participate in 
the now regularly occurring Brazilian symposia.
In its previous versions (2003, 2004 and 2005), which took place in 
Brazil, SIGET gradually increased its international scope. As a way of 
strengthening this trend, the forthcoming conference includes a 
scientific committee comprised of researchers from different countries.  
To enable foreign delegates do participate fully, the event will be held 
in Portuguese and in English. The papers will be grouped according to 
the language of presentation, and there will be simultaneous 
translations of the plenary sessions (English to Portuguese and vice-versa).
SIGET aim at:
1) putting together researchers interested in genre studies;
2) facilitating discussions on theoretical and applied subjects related 
to research on genre; 3) making public theoretical and applied studies 
that can contribute to re-thinking the approaches and perspectives on 
this subject;
4) raising pedagogical and political questions that will lead to policy 
The conference will include lectures, round tables, workshops, panels, 
individual paper sessions and posters.
SIGET is also opened to elementary and high school teachers, to 
University lecturers, as well as to professionals of other areas who 
want to extend their knowledge on the subjects focused here.
