Abstract

Interdiscursivity refers to the heterogeneity of texts, how they fold within them other texts, other utterances, and draw upon multiple discoursal contexts. By taking up the productive interaction between text and discourses, the concept of interdiscursivity proposes an examination of how on the one hand, discourse is typified and ordered bounded into more or less permeable or hybrid genres, and, on the other, how genres are prescriptively bound to accountable social action across multiple sites. Interdiscursivity sheds light on power and ideology: how discourses circulate, or alternatively drift, and how they are dialectically exported (decontextualized) and imported (recontextualized) between various sites and occasions of enunciation.
