Centre for Genre Research – University of Copenhagen

Centre for Genre Research embraces and seeks to develop the highly developed research in current Genre Studies.

At the core of this research is the advanced, remarkably cohesive, and extensive body of knowledge established in Rhetorical Genre Studies, in English for Specific Purposes, and in Systemic Functional Linguistics. The centre strives to expand the research by integrating further subjects to the field of study with a renewed emphasis on the aesthetic research fields.
