Meeting Description:

A two-day conference aiming to foster research on linguistic ‘impoliteness’ or ‘rudeness' by bringing together a range of theoretical and methodological approaches.

This two-day conference aims to foster research on what might be called linguistic 'impoliteness' or 'rudeness'. Whilst all papers will contribute in some way to the understanding of this particular area of language usage, the conference aims to bring together a range of theoretical and methodological approaches exploring the notion of impoliteness and the usage of impoliteness phenomena in discourse. The conference will complement and extend the field of politeness studies, which, hitherto, has paid little attention to impoliteness. Researchers and postgraduates working in fields such as linguistics, sociology, psychology, communication studies, organizational studies, conflict resolution studies, literature and philosophy are welcomed.

Invited plenary speakers: Janet Holmes (Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand), Richard J. Watts (University of Berne, Switzerland), Leslie Beebe (Teachers College, University of Columbia, USA). The Plenary panel will also include Timothy Jay (Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts, USA), Lynne Andersson (Temple University, USA).
