Meeting Description: Given the success of the International Interdisciplinary Conference -
Politeness: reflections and (re)inventions, held at Universidade Aberta,
Lisbon, in 2012, and considering (im)politeness to be a phenomenon not
strictly limited to linguistico-discursive approaches, the International
Interdisciplinary Conference - (IM)POLITENESS: expression of culture(s)
invites researchers to reflect on diverse manifestations of (im)politeness
that derive from cultural idiosyncrasies, revealing the similarities and
dichotomies an intercultural approach can bring to light.

The conference will be held at the University Cruzeiro do Sul, São Paulo,

The program includes plenary sessions, section work, discussions, and a
round table on the following issues:

1. (Im)politeness and linguistic and textual practices
2. Pragmatics and (inter)culture
3. (Im)politeness and its literary and artistic manifestations
4. (Im)politeness and style
5. (Im)politeness and professional practices
6. (Im)politeness in the digital age
