Call Deadline: 10-Jun-2003

The international linguistic journal ''Language and Intercultural
Communication'' founded by Adyghe State University, Maikop, Russia,
needs more articles written in English by foreign linguists to be
included in the June issue of the journal. The theme of the journal
covers many linguistic areas connected with intercultural
communication in its very broad meaning. The deadline is 10 June
2003. The journal is to be published by the end of June 2003. 

It is devoted to multiple aspects associated with Intercultural
Communication and Linguistics. We are encouraging all linguists doing
their research in these fields of study to submit their articles for
publication, irrespective of their citizenship and country of
residence. The Journal is a refereed edition and therefore preference
will be given to high quality professional articles, which will
contain original scholarly research, manifest new approaches and
trends in linguistic studies and will be in conformity with the main
theme of the Journal.

Meeting Description:
ASLA Conference
�rebro University, 6-7 November, 2003

Language, culture, rhetoric:
Linguistic communication in a cultural and rhetorical perspective

On behalf of ASLA (Association su�doise de linguistique appliqu�e),
the English section of the Department of Humanities, �rebro
University, Sweden, will host this years ASLA Conference. The
conference will be held on 6-7 November, 2003. The programme will
contain plenary sessions and workshops. Submissions are invited that
may deal with the conference theme as a whole, or with theoretical or
empirical aspects, such as the rhetoric of language and the language
of rhetoric, cross-cultural or multi-cultural communication patterns,
specific and mixed rhetorical practices in different discourse types,
etc. We welcome papers on a wide range of theoretical approaches,
including interdisciplinary studies covering fields such as
contrastive linguistics, discourse analysis, (comparative) rhetoric,
ethnolinguistics, linguistic argumentation and cognitive
linguistics. 

Our use of language reflects and shapes our cultural identity and
cognition, our ways of thinking and feeling, our value judgements and
behaviour. Recent linguistic studies indicate a growing interest for
exploring the interrelation between three core notions: language,
culture and rhetoric. Several investigations of oral and written
communication both in everyday situations (informal meetings,
telephone conversations, etc.) and in institutional settings
(political discourse, business communication, etc.) have contributed
to mapping and analysing intracultural and intercultural aspects of
converging, as well as diverging, interaction patterns. Rhetoric as
theory and method plays an essential role in unveiling and exploring
the relation between the written and the spoken word, between
private/public roles and language use, between empowering and
manipulating communication strategies, between non-fictional and
fictional language use, between tradition-bound and ground-breaking
cultural conventions, between source language and target language
constraints in terms of translation goals and outcomes.

This year's ASLA symposium aims at offering researchers who are
interested in the issue of convergence between language, culture and
rhetoric an opportunity to meet and share ideas. Proposed
contributions may either deal with the conference theme as a whole, or
they may concern theoretical or empirical aspects, such as the
rhetoric of language and the language of rhetoric, cross-cultural or
multi-cultural communication patterns, specific and mixed rhetorical
practices in different discourse types, etc. We welcome papers on a
wide range of theoretical approaches, including interdisciplinary
studies covering fields such as contrastive linguistics, discourse
analysis, (comparative) rhetoric, ethnolinguistics, linguistic
argumentation and cognitive linguistics.
