Meeting Description:

Key note speakers

- Professor Srikant Sarangi, Cardiff University
- Professor Hanna Risku, Danube University Krems
- Senior scientist Hugo Fjelsted Alrøe, International Centre for
Research in Organic Food Systems

The conference is the 3rd conference in our international biannual conference
series that approach communication, discourse, and concrete texts from a 360°
perspective. After the first two conferences in the series, which had the
instructive text (2006) and knowledge (2008) as the focal points, we now focus
on knowledge asymmetries.

According to Webster's Encyclopedic Unabridged Dictionary of the English
Language (1989 edition), being asymmetric means 'not identical on both sides of
a central line'. Talking about knowledge asymmetries, i.e., using asymmetry not
as a geometrical or mathematical concept but figuratively, we apply it as a
metaphor to human communicative interaction.

Call for Papers

We invite papers that approach knowledge asymmetries from different
perspectives. Accordingly, three tracks focusing on three different
perspectives are foreseen, i.e.:

- Communication
- Representation
- Construction and Learning

Track 1: Communication; e.g. papers focusing on:
- what features, crystallization points etc. can be found within communicative
events where knowledge asymmetries may manifest themselves?
- how do knowledge asymmetries influence communicative action?

Track 2: Representation; e.g. papers focusing on:
- how and to which extent are knowledge asymmetries in relation to an 'alter'
constructed in texts?
- which strands of texts, genres, or discourses seem to favour a) the
development, b) the maintenance or c) the deconstruction of knowledge

Track 3: Construction and Learning; e.g. papers focusing on:
- how and to which extent are knowledge asymmetries of an individual in
relation to an 'alter' measurable?
- what features, parameters etc. are responsible for the fact that individuals
seem to overcome knowledge asymmetries differently?

For participation with paper, please complete the abstract template on this
website: http://www.asb.dk/article.aspx?pid=22137

The abstract must be sent to 360asb.dk.

The deadline for submission of abstracts is 15th January, 2010

The conference languages are English and German.
