2. Enculturation? Discourse Communities? Genres? 3. What type of genre would you say this is?How do you know? What is it saying?Your amorous ruling planet Venus,turns retrograde,puts your social life in reverse for much of the next six weeks.The Moons presence in your pleasure-seeking, an invitation to indulge your senses.Generously sharing the delights of food, nature, music and physicality creates a joyful experience for you and your lucky companion. 4. Finish reading your first article(Devitt, Bawarshi, and Reiff). Take notes inyour journal. I will be collecting this. Try tohave a brief summary, along with notes. Start looking for an article in your field. Usethe library databases. 5. Genre study allows students and researchers to recognize how lived textuality plays arole in the lived experience of a group (542). But it is when genres encompass participants beyond a narrow community that the effectsof those interests become most troublesome (543). Clashes of knowledge and perspective still result when specialists and nonspecialistsmeet, clashes that have consequences in terms of how participants interact, perform theiractions, and produce certain effects in the world (544). Genre study gives us specific access to the sites of language use that make upcommunities, in all their complexity (549). genres appear to be transparent when they are understood as ways of classifying texts.But recent scholarship in genre theory has tried to dispel this view by stipulating genres tobe language forms that have identifiable and changing roles in interpersonal relations andin larger collective contexts (550). 6. is a good way to understand somethingabout how doctors function and how theytreat us as patients (550). 7. Take a look at the sample PMHF Then, discuss and be ready to share: What issues, ideas, suggestions does the genre address? When people use this genre, what is it that they are interacting about? Who reads this genre? Who writes this genre? Is there more than onetype of reader and/or writer? Why is the genre used? What purposes does the genre fulfill for thepeople who use it? What diction is most common? What types of words are mostfrequent? Is slang used? How would you describe the writers voice? What values, beliefs, goals, and assumptions are revealed through thegenres patterns? How is the subject of the genre treated? What content is consideredimportant? What content (topics or details) is ignored? What actions does the genre make possible? 8. The fact that the genre is mainly concernedwith a patients physical symptoms suggeststhat one can isolate physical symptoms andtreat them with little to no reference to thepatients state of mind and the effect thatstate of mind might have on thesesymptoms (551). 9. the PMHF reflects Western notions ofmedicine, notions that are rhetoricallynaturalized and reproduced by the genre andthat are in turn embodied in the way thedoctor recognizes, interacts with, and treatsthe patient as synecdoche of his or herphysical symptoms (551). 10. The form is at once a patient record, a legaldocument, and an element in a bureaucracy,helping the doctor treat the patient andpresumably protecting the doctor frompotential lawsuits (551). 11. Analyzing genres allows us to see whyindividuals use language in specific settingsto make specific practices possible. 12. Use the library databases to find articlespublished in a journal within your discipline. If you cant decide on a conversation, focuson a communication issue 13. Preliminary Genre Analysis: Find 3-5 articles using the databases Analyze how the genre reflects thecommunity (look at assignment sheet) Take notes in your journal as you read Final assignment will be in paragraphform, though you can use headings toseparate content
