The DFG-funded research project "Planning-in-Action: The Communicative Fabrication of the Future in Projective Genres" is dedicated to projective genres of everyday communication. Projective genres are understood as solidified forms of communication that are used to talk about the future in everyday life. In projective genres, the future is communicatively processed in the broadest sense. The project is dedicated to the forms of speaking about future actions in everyday contexts, i.e. the communicative forms with which interactors prepare, discuss, plan their actions in everyday life.
