THEMES: As always, the conference will be open to all themes relevant to the
pragmatics of language in its widest sense as an interdisciplinary
cognitive, social, and cultural perspective. Prospective participants
should, however, pay attention to the distribution of topics across event
types, as described below. In addition, there is a special theme.

SPECIAL THEME:

Linguistic pluralism : policies, practices and pragmatics

This is a theme that was chosen by the Local Site Committee and approved by
the Consultation Board. It corresponds to the interests of a large number of
IPrA members, and permits us to link cognitive, linguistic, social and
political approaches to a phenomenon of long-standing interest in pragmatics
and of current theoretical, as well as social and policy importance. The
intention will be to focus the conference on making those links in a number
of ways, ranging from choice of plenary speakers and special panels, to
invitations to interested and relevant Canadians outside the academy. The
theme is one which also fits the venue, given Canada's historical
involvement in debates on such issues, and Toronto's profile as a major
centre of new globalized urban multilingualism. However, it is meant here to
go beyond traditional ideas about "multilingualism" understood as connecting
linguistic difference primarily to ethnic or national distinctions, and
rather to extend that concept to the links between language and all forms of
social difference and social inequality. The theme is also appropriate to
the expertise of the members of the Local Site Committee which is committed
to tying academic approaches to broader public debates.
