Meeting Description:

What is the OTF?

The Oita Text Forum was founded in August 2009 by 5 scholars in Japan
and China. The goals of the OTF are to:

-Provide an open forum where researchers from different disciplinary
backgrounds can exchange information and share knowledge of how texts
are produced and structured, and;
-Elucidate the process of text generation from social or cognitive or
socio-cognitive perspectives.

The OTF defines text as any form of structured semiotic entity, and

-linguistic texts, whether written or spoken
-paintings, sculptures, and any form of art
-dance, etc.
-any combination of these semiotic modes

For more details, please contact Keizo Nanri at keizo-nanri AT cc.oita-

OTF Workshop Round 2

Theme: Text, Function, and Context
Date: Sunday 5th December 2010
Venue: Compal Hall, Oita, Japan
Registration: Free

The Oita Text Forum (OTF) is pleased to invite you to participate in OTF
Workshop Round 2.

OTF Workshop Round 2 focuses on fundamental elements in
understanding the relationship between text, context, beliefs (including
ideology and semiotic or knowledge base), and material situational setting.

Specifically, we may explore questions such as:

-What is the relation between text and the context of situation?
-What can we say about (the context of) culture in relation to text
And how does the former affect the latter?
-What is the relationship between the context of situation and material
situational setting?
-To what extent, if any, do extra-linguistic features play in formulating
descriptions of texts?

The OTF welcomes scholars from different disciplinary backgrounds.

You may present a 30-minute long paper (a 20-minute presentation,
followed by a 10-minute discussion) or a 60-minute workshop.

Please send a 300-word abstract (if you wish to read a paper) or a 600-
word abstract (if you wish to present a workshop) to keizo-nanri AT cc.oita-
u.ac.jp. Workshops must be interactive and involve the audience, and
abstracts must clearly outline how the workshop will proceed. The deadline
for abstract submission is 31st October 2010.
