John Benjamins Publishing wishes to announce that members of the company
will be attending the 11th International Pragmatics Association meeting in
Melbourne, July 12-17, 2009.
Present will be Ms. Seline Benjamins, Managing Director, and Mr. Jan Reijer
Groesbeek, Publishing Director, who will be glad to discuss manuscript
proposals and other initiatives. On this occasion Mr. John Benjamins,
President, will be also present and hopes to see old friends.
Benjamins will host a reception on Monday the 13th for conference
participants and will take the occasion of the meeting to launch various
new projects like:
-New journal for 2009. 'Constructions and Frames,' an international
peer-reviewed journal that provides a forum for construction-based
approaches to language analysis. It is edited by Kyoko Ohara, Keio
University, and Kiki Nikiforidou, University of Athens.
-New journal for 2010. 'Chinese Language and Discourse; An International
and Interdisciplinary Journal,' edited by K. K. Luke (Nanyang Technological
University & University of Hong Kong), Hongyin Tao (University of
California, Los Angeles) and Li Wei (University of London). This will be a
peer-reviewed journal which seeks to publish original work on Chinese and
related languages, with a focus on current topics in Chinese discourse studies.
-A totally new initiative --- Handbook of Pragmatics Highlights. This
series of handy paperbacks, under the editorship of Jef Verschueren,
University of Antwerp, and Jan-Ola Ostman, University of Helsinki, will
focus on the most salient topics in the field of pragmatics, dividing its
wide interdisciplinary spectrum in a transparent and manageable way.
All are invited to join us at the Benjamins exhibit. The editor of "The
Pragmatics and Beyond" book series, Prof. Anita Fetzer, will also be
present at the booth.
