Call Deadline: 25-Feb-2006

Meeting Description:

Celebrating more than thirty years of critically applied linguistic research at the University of East Anglia, the School of Language, Linguistics and Translation Studies is hosting CADAAD, an opportunity for interdisciplinary application and development in critical approaches to discourse analysis.

Thirty years have passed since research began at the University of East Anglia (UEA) into what would be inaugurated as Critical Linguistics with the publication of Language and Control in 1979. UEA has since remained at the forefront of critically applied linguistic research.

In continuation of this tradition, the School of Language, Linguistics and Translation Studies (LLT) invites abstracts to be considered for a conference designed to assess the state of the art and offer new directions for interdisciplinary critical discourse research. The conference is organized in cooperation with the Centre for Applied Research in Education (CARE) and the Centre for Staff and Educational Development (CSED).

Whilst it is CDA that has claimed the most attention, papers dealing with any critical approaches to discourse analysis are invited across a variety of disciplines.

Interdisciplinarity as a central theme for the conference can be interpreted in two ways. First, we are interested in critical approaches to discourse analysis as applied within disciplines including all humanities and sciences but also applied and professional areas such as medicine, environmental studies, engineering, social policy, education, law, etc. Second, the methodological foundations of critical discourse analysis historically lie with linguistics (from transformational to systemic functional grammar) and ethnography. However, recently critical approaches to discourse analysis have benefited from a wider range of methodologies. We therefore also welcome and encourage papers reflecting the theoretical advances in linguistics, psychology and cognitive science amongst other disciplines which offer the opportunity for critically applied discourse research to expand its methodological arsenal.

To further underscore CADAAD's theme, the invited plenary speakers each represent a different approach to interdisciplinarity and innovation in (critical) discourse analysis.

- Gunther Kress
- Christ'l de Landtsheer
- Louis de Saussure
- Ruth Wodak

The conference will experiment with a new form of online proceedings inviting post-conference interaction between presenters, participants and an external audience. From this process, selected presentations will be published in print form. CADAAD is pursuing publication opportunities with the John Benjamins series Discourse Approaches to Politics, Society and Culture (DAPSAC).

Abstracts of 300 words plus references should be submitted to discourseuea.ac.uk by 25 February, 2006 in Word format (RTF or plain text are acceptable alternatives, use of PDF is discouraged). Speakers will be allocated 20 minutes talk-time with 10 minutes for questions. Abstracts for posters are also invited. Authors should include their name, affiliation, correspondence details and indicate whether they are submitting for a session paper or a poster presentation. Successful applicants will be notified by 31 March.

Details of registration will be available soon on the conference website at http://discourse.uea.ac.uk

Organised by Christopher Hart and Dominik Lukeš with Paul Chilton. All organisers can be contacted through the conference email on discourseuea.ac.uk.
