CALL FOR PAPERS - SECOND ANNOUNCEMENT

Colloquium on Intercultural Business Communication Research
at the 3rd Symposium on Bilingualism, University of the
West of England, Bristol, 18 - 20 April 2001

The aim of this colloquium is to gain more insight into the
qualitative and quantitative methods that can be used for research on
intercultural business communication, the problematic aspects of these
methods, and how these can be solved. We aim to bring together
researchers from different theoretical backgrounds in the field of
Intercultural Business Communication such as socio- and
psycholinguists, cultural psychologists and (business) communication
specialists. One focus will be on empirical research in the field of
intercultural competence for business communication and on relevant
research in the field of bilingualism/biculturalism. Papers with an
interdisciplinary approach are particularly welcome.

Subject: Colloquium on Elite Bilingualism Contemporary Middle Class Mobility in Europe

Colloquium on Elite Bilingualism - Contemporary Middle
Class Mobility in Europe at the 3rd Symposium on
Bilingualism, University of the West of England, Bristol,
18 - 20 April 2001


The linguistic construction of Europe: migrant elites and the cultural
funcy"ions of English. The focus of this colloquium is on the
linguistic identity" of Europe and its emerging multilingual
elite. The main questions are:

� is there a new "itinerant" culture of highly skilled migrants
in Europe?

� what role does multilingualism play in the construction of the ethnic 
identity of this new mobile middle class?

� to what extent is this new middle class an agent of a new European 
identity?

� what is the role of English in the process of constructing Europe's 
linguistic identity?

We are looking for papers on these questions from scholars from a wide
rang� of disciplines like Linguistics/ Sociolinguistics,
Anthropology, Cultural Geography and History. A final panel discussion will 
be held after the paper session(s) to discuss the questions raised above.
