Date: 11-Nov-2010 - 13-Nov-2010

Web Site: http://fermi.univr.it/lexis/

Linguistic Field(s): Anthropological Linguistics; Lexicography

Call Deadline: 15-May-2010

Meeting Description:

Research on dictionaries and foreign language textbooks generally focuses
separately either on specialized textual genres or on cultural issues,
whereas so far only few studies have joined the two aspects so as to focus
on lexicon- be it general or specialized - from a cultural perspective. Yet all
uses of a language, including those for special and teaching purposes,
entail some cultural dimension.

Hence, culture(s)-sensitive lexicographical tools are needed that enable
speakers to achieve the necessary cultural knowledge (including the
awareness of the diversities among cultural systems) to communicate
successfully in international settings, even for specific and professional
purposes- e.g., in domains such as business, institutional, legal, media,
medical, political, or tourist discourse.

The conference, organized within the framework of the national research
project 'Dictionaries, Language Materials and Words across Languages,
Cultures and Ideologies', aims at shedding light on the relationship between
lexicon and cultural heritage, focusing on dictionaries, glossaries and
textbooks.
