EDICE Programme (Studies of Politeness Discourse in Spanish), from
Stockolm University (Sweden), is making an international call for
papers for an important publication both in Europe and in America in a
world-wide recognised publishing house and several distributors. This
volume will be a ''Bus'', that is to say, a collection of about 15 to
20 papers, relatively short, which address the topic of politeness
from different perspectives, both theoretically and methodologically,
and for a non-specialised audience. EDICE Programme will particularly
consider the following areas in the study of politeness in and about
Spanish:

*Different varieties of Spanish
*Gender studies
*Contrastive studies
*Languages in contact
*e-Communication
*Applied linguistics: teaching Spanish as a second/foreign language
*Academic and Political Discourse
*Discourse in people with differentiated abilities

Those researchers interested in participating in this publication will
need to send the following details:

- -----------------------------------------
1. Author details
 a. Names
 b. e-Mail
 c. University/Institution
 d. Short CV / Resume / Bionote

2. Paper details
 a. Preliminary title
 b. Preliminary abstract (300-350 wods)
 c. Estimated date to finish paper
- ----------------------------------------

Prospective authors will have to send the above mentioned details to
any of the e-mail addresses that follows below. It is important to
make clear that authors only need to send the requested details and
not the finished paper, EDICE Programme will ask authors to mail their
proposed papers in due time. Finally, all papers will be considered by
an international group of referees.

EDICE Programme (Studies of Politeness Discourse in Spanish), from
Stockolm University (Sweden), addresses research projects related to
the topic of politeness in Spanish. It includes studies in the areas
of linguistics, antropology, sociology, and literature as its
objectives are multi- and interdisciplinary. Accordingly, EDICE
Programme promotes a scientific exchange between institutions,
universities, and researchers who somehow approach the study of
politeness in each variety of Spanish in its specific socio-cultural
context.

In the last two years, EDICE Programme has organised international
exchange activities between Sweden, Argentina, England and Spain, (a
Fellowship Programme financed by STINT, The Swedish Foundation for
International Cooperation in Research and Higher Education), and in
September 2002 the ''EDICE Programme First Colloquium'', attended by
European and LatinAmerican researchers (for more information please
