    Abstract : Given that knowledge in society is increasingly shaped by textuality and dependent on texts, higher education holds a special responsibility for introducing and guiding students into text practices contingent on disciplinary fields and their knowledge traditions. On a general level, this doctoral thesis investigates how participation in such text practices at university functions as a means for engaging students with knowledge that is new to them. READ MORE

  2. 2. Engagement in Medical Research Discourse: A Multisemiotic Discourse-Semantic Study of Dialogic Positioning

    University dissertation from Göteborgs universitet

    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; engagement; medical research discourse; social semiotics; systemic functional linguistics; dialogic theory; linguistics; semiosis; multisemiosis; multimodality; intersemiosis; intermodality; corpus linguistics; genre; disciplinarity; ideology;

    Abstract : This study investigates how medical researchers engage with a background of prior and anticipated utterances in a collection of highly cited English-language medical research articles. Taking a multisemiotic, systemic-functional approach, I examine the verbal, visual, and mathematical resources used by medical research writers to construe, engage with, and position themselves in relation to a dialogic background of different voices, positions, and propositions.
