Linguistic Field(s): Sociolinguistics
The third edition of the international conference "Individual and Specific
Signs" intends to combine contributions coming from different fields of
reflection: Letters / Philology, History, Psychology and Sociology,
Communication Sciences, Economic Sciences, thus leading to a multi- and
transdisciplinary dialogue. On the premises of the new European context that
reconsiders the unity in diversity and imposes the preservation of the identity
marks, our conference also revolves around the idea of social corporatist
responsibility, of a new identity and of a new civic image.
This is the reason why this year, through the general topic "Cultural
Spaces and Identities in (Inter)Action", we suggest a productive discussion
which has at its core the constant implications of the innovative ideas in
literature, linguistics, arts, history, philosophy, communication sciences, all
envisaged in the process of identity reconstruction.
Conference Thematic Areas:
Paradigms of Identity
-Praxi-theoretical perspectives in culture, language sciences, socio-political
sciences, history and philosophy;
-Identity - from the local-regional perspective to the European one;
cultural interferences and forms of alterity;
-Representations of the urban discourse: linguistic perspectives,
literary approach, communicational practices, organizational practices.
Tradition and Innovation in (Post)Modernism
-Literature between construction and deconstruction;
-"The linguistic turn" and its current implications in language sciences;
-Verbal and nonverbal signs in educational practices;
-Present-day theatrical forms; text and representation
-Corporatist social responsibility.
Linguistics and Cultural Anthropology
-Traditions and cultural institutions as a form of human action in the social space;
-Mentalities, attitudes and behaviour confronting the perspective of globalization;
-Verbal and nonverbal significant systems in a diachronic perspective

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as such
can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non
Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations can be
offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax payers
only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your financial advisor.
Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any
gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your contacting
your human resources department and sending us a form that the EMU Foundation fills
in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple administrative procedure
that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny.
Please take a moment to check if your company operates such a program.
Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
