Linguistic Sub-field: Sociolinguistics 
Call Deadline: 30-Sep-2003

Meeting Description:

The aim of this Conference section is to discuss differences and
commonalities in the ideas about language and language norms in
various language cultures. (This mail is particularly addressed to
scholars working on fields like sociolinguistics, pluricentric
languages, language policy, foreign language teaching, discourse
analysis, political discourse, pragmatics, language ideologies,
lexicology of national varieties etc..)

Call for papers 
for the section ''Standard Variations and Conceptions of Language in
Various Language Cultures'' at the international conference ''The
Unifying aspects of Cultures'' which will be held from Nov. 7-9th 2003
in Vienna (Austria) organised by Rudolf Muhr, Dept. of German,
University of Graz, Austria. The conference is hosted by the
''Research Institute for Austrian and International Literature and
Cultural Studies'' (http://www.inst.at).

Topic: 
The aim of this section is to discuss differences and commonalities in
the ideas about language and language norms in various language
cultures. These differences concern, for example, one's openness to
''foreign'' elements (purist versus integration), one's attitude to
one's own language (language pride versus language shame), one's
attitudes toward variants of one's own language (multilingualism
vs. monolingualism) as well as association with stigmatisation or
prestige of languages and language variations. Another topic could be
the differences in the association with language norms in mono- and
pluricentric languages and their effects on the concerned language
cultures. In the ''smaller'' variants a discrepancy always exists
between the norms of one's own country and the norms of the entire
language, which are normally determined by the largest country. How to
deal with these uncertainties and the differences in the standard
norms can also be one of the many additional themes of this section.

Papers: 30 min. / Statements: 15. Min
Abstracts should be sent to: muhrgewi.kfunigraz.ac.at
Deadline: Sept. 30th 2003
All papers will be published in TRANS the publishing series of the
Research Institute for Austrian and International Literature and
Cultural Studies.

Papers from the Americas, from Asia and Australasia about aspects of
pluricentric languages and language ideologies are particularly
welcomed to achieve a broad overview on different approaches to
concepts like ''mother tongue'', ''our common language'', ''language
attitudes of dominating varieties vs. attitudes of the ''other
varieties'', ''standard variation'', ''one language-different norms''
etc.
