Genre as Temporally Situated Social Action: A Study of Temporality and Genre Activity.
Dunmire, Patricia L.
Written Communication, v17 n1 p93-138 Jan 2000
Reviews how temporality has figured in rhetorical studies of genre through the notions of kairos and temporal exigence. Presents two models of time, "clock time" and "process time," as a means for representing temporal dimensions of rhetorical contexts and genre activity. Examines interplay between these temporal models and genre by analyzing a nurse practitioner's communicative interaction with two patients. (SR)
