Cross-Linguistic Discourse Annotation:
Towards Shared Resources, Tools and Methods

(TextLink: COST Action IS1312)

Call for Papers

The TextLink COST Action addresses Discourse Relational Devices (DRDs) in terms of resources, annotation models (including their comparability), and tools both for annotating DRDs and interconnecting annotated data. With a network covering research on no less than 20 different languages, written as well as spoken discourse, in a variety of genres and registers, and corpora that range from « in construction » to « fully annotated », the second Action Conference will constitute a milestone in (re)defining the objectives that need to be reached in view of constructing a TextLink Portal that make these resources and tools more widely known and available.

The meeting is open to everyone, both current members of TextLink and other researchers and practitioners working in the area.

Venue: Karoli Gaspar University of the Reformed Church, Budapest
Dates: 11–13 April 2016

7th International Conference on Intercultural Pragmatics and Communication
INPRA 2016

Split (Croatia), 10 – 12 June 2016

www.unist.hr/interculturalpragmatics2016

The International Conference on Intercultural Pragmatics and Communication (INPRA) is a well-known biennial meeting and this would be its 7th edition. The main aim of the conference is to bring together researchers from around the world who have diverse scientific backgrounds but share the same field of interest – pragmatics, being perceived as a cognitive, philosophical, social, and intercultural perspective on language and communication.
This conference should promote connections between pragmatic theory and its application in practice, theoretical perspectives (philosophical, cognitive, societal) and intercultural, cross-cultural and societal aspects of pragmatic research.

Konferenciafelhívás: Reflexivity and Critique in Discourse

DN17 Reflexivity and Critique in Discourse (Call for Papers)
16.03.2016-18.03.2016
University of Navarra (UNAV), Pamplona, Spain

Content
The 17th DN conference on reflexivity and critique offers a venue for exploring the different ways in which reflexivity and critique can be deployed in order to shape (our understandings of) selves, discourses and societies in meaningful ways. To this end, this conference hopes to bring together researchers interested in (a) the role of reflexivity and critique in the study of discourse and/or in (b) the role of reflexivity and critique play in the social realities we investigate. Prof. Jan Blommaert, Prof. Johannes Angermüller, Prof. Marianne Winther-Jörgensen and Prof. Ramon Reichert will act as keynote speakers.

The use of language and other multimodal and symbolic systems of communication requires some degree of reflexive awareness. This reflexive awareness allows us to criticize our own discourses as well as the discourses of others. Without it, scientific, cultural and political debate could not take place. In some ways, all language users perform critical and less critical modes of discourse analysis on a daily basis. We would not be able to imagine alternative worlds if we were unable to make use of the reflexive potential of our systems of communication.
