Call for Papers:

Over the past two decades interest in rhetoric has become more and more
central in dialogue studies. The basic questions concerning the nature of
dialogue and of rhetoric have been addressed from new perspectives. Are
they to be dealt with separately by focusing on a distinction between
rhetorical and non-rhetorical texts, or is rhetoric an intrinsic part of dialogue
analysis? How do we most effectively pursue our goals in communication?
How can we optimize performance? As the object itself - effective dialogic
interaction - is a complex object, addressing rhetoric in dialogue cuts across
disciplinary boundaries of linguistics, philosophy, media and communication
sciences. It is dealt with in rule-governed models of communicative
competence as well as in models of ever-changing performance. Recently a
research tendency can be observed which aims to bring both strands
together, competence and performance, in describing human beings' ability
of competence-in-performance. In this sense, the conference is open to the
various approaches in Dialogue Analysis and Rhetoric but will have a
specific focus on approaches that aim at addressing the mixed game of
effective dialogic interaction. Questions of culture and institutions are
included.

Plenary papers will be given by: Adelino Cattani (Padova), Kenneth N.
Cissna (Tampa/South Florida), François Cooren (Montreal), Robert T. Craig
(Boulder/Colorado), Werner Kallmeyer (Mannheim), Frans van Eemeren
(Amsterdam), Edda Weigand (Münster)
