Negotiation & Renegotiation
Department of French & Italian
Graduate Student Conference in Literature and Linguistics
Indiana University-Bloomington, March 1-2, 2013
‘Negotiations, then, will never be motivated solely by ideals of truth and validity; there will always be an element of interest, mostly conflicting interest and, hence, of power, driving them forward.’
Anne Eriksen and Jón Vidhar Sigurdhsson, Negotiating Pasts in the Nordic Countries: Interdisciplinary Studies in History and Memory. (Sweden: Nordic Academic Press, 2010), 21.
This conference will examine the themes of Negotiation and Renegotiation in any area of French or Italian Studies. We shall examine such questions as: How do authors negotiate between seemingly conflicting themes or positions? How do texts negotiate between genres, periods, and styles? How do speakers negotiate meaning within and across languages/dialects? How do language learners negotiate acquisition?
|Linguistic Subfield:||Anthropological Linguistics; General Linguistics; Language Acquisition; Ling & Literature; Sociolinguistics|
