The next international (im)politeness conference, under the aegis of the Centre for Intercultural Politeness Research (University of Huddersfield) and the Linguistic Politeness Research Group (LPRG), is to be held at the University of Huddersfield, from 9 to 11 July 2014. Its theme is Conventional (Im)Politeness.
Since the publication of Brown and Levinson's seminal work there has been much interest in the conventional aspect of politeness and impoliteness, including conventionalised politeness implicatures (Tekourafi 2003; Haugh forthcoming), conventionalised impoliteness (Culpeper 2011), the interface between conventions and ritual practices (Kadar 2013), conventionalised im/politeness formulae (Culpeper 2010), the interface between conventions and other (im)politeness phenomena (Kadar and Haugh 2013), and so on. Studying conventional forms and practices provides key insights into the interactional operation of (im)politeness across cultures, intracultural variation, and other key issues in the field. Furthermore, research on conventional practices can neatly merge qualitative analysis with quantitative methodologies, thus making an important step towards systematising (im)politeness.
We are proud to have the following (confirmed) keynote speakers:
Haruko Cook (University of Hawaiʻi)
Jonathan Culpeper (Lancaster University)
Michael Haugh (Griffith University)
