BOLIVAR, Adriana. Giovanni Parodi’s scientific contribution and two debates: Discourse genres and critical reading. Rev. signos [online]. 2021, vol.54, n.107, pp.687-710. ISSN 0718-0934.

Giovanni Parodi’s scientific contribution is enormous and widely recognised in Latin America and other countries in the world. What started as an interest in improving reading comprehension has become a multidisciplinary research space that covers linguistics, psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics discourse analysis, corpus linguistics, rhetoric, argumentation, critical discourse analysis, computational linguistics, multimodality and other fields. He built a path in which debate was constantly present to innovate the theory and the teaching practice, but he left us some pending tasks. For this reason, in this paper I concentrate first on the themes that he contributed to highlight in academic and professional discourse, which influenced the teaching of reading and writing in higher education, and then I focus on two central problems that we must continue to debate, on the one hand, the research traditions that offer theoretical frameworks, methodologies and didactic orientation to explain and teach academic and professional genres and, on the other, the meanings of critical reading and its teaching. In general, I discuss the relevance of linguistics and celebrate the social commitment of linguists, critical discourse analysts and educators with making Latin American research visible.
