How genre and discourse community relate to each other and shape both the expectation and content of media


  • Sayyidah Winbush


In this presentation, I will demonstrate how genreand discourse community effect and change each other through images and information displayed on a poster that show examples of how the same content was changed, both physically and conceptually, based on the change in genre and discourse community that the content was intended for. Along with the poster and photographs, there will also be physical books that people can pick up and look through so they also can observe the physical differences in the content.
