Meeting Description:

I-mean 2, Context and Meaning Conference, UWE, Bristol 13-15 April 2011

The conference addresses the relationship between context and meaning,
how context may be defined, how meaning is interpreted in context, how
speakers create and negotiate context in interaction, and how context is
dealt with in different research traditions. We seek to explore ways in which
researchers can fruitfully work across methodological and disciplinary
boundaries. Particularly in the (broadly defined) field of discourse analysis,
there are widely recognized approaches which are often associated with
specific methodological tools.

The conference aims to explore whether and to what extent bringing
together different methodological and theoretical approaches can:

- enhance understanding of meaning in interaction
- capture the contextual information which speakers draw upon dynamically
in interaction
- lead to theoretically robust methodological innovation

Papers are invited from researchers working across different linguistic fields
and traditions, focusing on any aspect of meaning and interaction.

Main conference themes:

Context in spoken interaction: methodologies and methods
Context and intercultural pragmatics
Multimodal approaches to context
Context and meaning in translation
The teachability of sociopragmatics

Plenary speakers (confirmed):

Karin Aijmer, University of Gothenburg,
Paul Drew, University of York,
Susan Herring, Indiana University,
Sally McConnell-Ginet, Cornell University
Norma Mendoza-Denton, University of Arizona

Round table: Stances, methodologies and methods for the analysis of
context in interaction.

I-mean 2 will include a round table as a central event where distinguished
scholars representing well established paradigms in the analysis of
interaction will discuss whether and to what extent bringing together
different theoretical stances, methodologies and methods is a) possible b)
beneficial to methodological innovation and c) can lead to a better
understanding of context in interaction.

Invited colloquia:
I-mean 2 will host two invited colloquia. Details will be announced by the end
of October 2010.
