Call For Participation

INTRODUCTION

The interdependence of language and social context has never been more
widely acknowledged than in the modern-day realization that language
and empowerment are inextricably linked to societal developments. The
role of language in building, determining and changing power
relationships is receiving much attention today. There is a growing
awareness that language functions and language use are closely related
to the exercise of power. This exercise of power is manifested
through the ideological workings of language in different spheres of
society be they academic, professional, commercial, political etc.

OBJECTIVES

The objectives of the conference are:

1. To share insights and experiences on the interrelationships between
language and empowerment in different social contexts.
2. To discuss and review good practices in language use that can bring
about positive changes in power relationships.
3. To encourage continuing research activities in areas related to
language and power.
