MAG 2019: Rosa Lorés and Isabel Herrando-Rodrigo discuss new identity markers in digital texts

With the aim to problematize metadiscourse as a framework for the study of writer’s identity and voice, Dr Herrando-Rodrigo and Dr Lorés-Sanz investigated writers’ visibility in a corpus of websites. Their results showed that new markers had to be identified to explore how e-visibility was constructed and projected and that three types could be identified: impersonated, collective and individual visibility.
