MOIRAND, Sophie. Dissemination of science and technology: New models for new objects of study?. Rev. signos [online]. 2006, vol.39, n.61, pp.231-358. ISSN 0718-0934.

This article discusses the evolution of the ways both science and technology have been disseminated since the ‘80s, especially in the daily written press. In this analysis, this evolution focuses on two complementary perspectives: corpus constitution and construction of what can be observed. The above is carried out through the unreliable methods and theories employed by research projects on the discourse analysis of the dissemination of science and technology in the last decade. In fact, that research has helped "move" the objects of study in terms of the evolution of the issues found in the mass media and of the media treatment in the French daily press: from the so-called dissemination of science discourses of the ‘80s, which in Europe would reveal a 19th-century humanist perspective and would seek "to explain science" to a lay audience, to the discourse studies of "science" and "technology" and, more accurately, to the relations between science and society. Today, the scientific world does not work independently from the political and economic world, and new ways of scientific communication in and with the mass media have emerged. Hence, a "border" problem in the so-called dissemination discourses has arisen.

Palabras clave : Dialogism; dissemination of science; interdiscourse; mediatization; reformulation; discursive memory.
