From: Nigel Bruce <>
Subject: "Knowledge & Discourse: Call for Papers

 "Knowledge and Discourse: Speculating on disciplinary futures"
 A Call for Papers: Revised deadline: 30th November, 2001

Dear Colleagues,

The English Centre at Hong Kong University, with the Language Centre,
is organising a follow-up conference to our 1st Knowledge & Discourse
conference back in June 1996, entitled: "Knowledge and Discourse:
Speculating on disciplinary futures" [KD2 for short!] Scheduled
themes and plenary speakers are: Universities and knowledge production
Steve Fuller (Warwick, UK) Critical approaches to literacy Roz Ivanic
(Lancaster, UK) Voices and culture in the classroom Claire Kramsch
(Berkeley, USA) Natural, social and virtual worlds Bruno Latour
(Paris, France) Discourses of popular culture Gregory Lee (Lyon,
France) Disciplinary discourses and practices Paul Prior (U-C,
Illinois, USA) Workplace discourses and practices Srikant Sarangi
(Cardiff, UK) Gender, ethnicity and identity tba

The conference will also feature pre-conference workshops and
conversations featuring plenary speakers, and a debate between Steve
Fuller and Bruno Latour. We are aiming at an interactive conference,
featuring discussion sessions after each plenary, and at the end of
each trio of parallel session papers or colloquia [we are accepting
proposals for 3-paper or 6-paper colloquia]. All discussions will be
designed to address key questions or issues nominated by the speakers.

We hope you will circulate this Call for Papers to your colleagues and
others in your professional network, and to any discussion groups to
which you subscribe. For more information, please check the
attachment, or if that fails to download, visit the conference website
directly at: The site will be regularly updated,
notably with information on the pre-conference workshops (in
November), selected abstracts (from February), and the program
schedule (April). We hope to see you in June, 2002, here in Hong
