Language as a Social and Cultural Practice: Advances in Linguistics
Le langage en tant que pratique sociale et culturelle: nouveaux résultats en
linguistique Sprache als soziale und kulturelle Praxis: Neue Ergebnisse aus
der Linguistik

This conference will be a platform for the presentation and discussion of
research on the theme of the conference title in connection with the three
foci listed below. At the same time, the conference marks the completion of
a three-year doctoral programme by the same name, run jointly by the
universities of Basel, Berne and Zurich and funded by the Swiss National
Science Foundation.

Thematic foci:

1) Communication in the new media: slightly older forms of communication
(such as e-mail, chats) as well as the newer Web 2.0 forms of
communication (social networking sites, picture sharing) are in the spotlight
here. Particular interest is placed on issues pertaining to the tension
between private and public spheres in this context.

2) Multilingualism and migration: papers are welcome on different forms of
multilingualism at home as well as in the workplace, with particular interest
placed on the aspects of language maintenance and language shift in such
environments.

3) Formulaic Language: emergence, characteristics, function and change of
formulaic language in a broad sense (including such phenomena as
collocations, constructions, discourse patterns, etc.) are central to this
topical area.

Plenary lectures will be presented by:

David Crystal (Bangor University)
Aneta Pavlenko (Temple University)
Alison Wray (Cardiff University)

Georges Lüdi / Bruno Moretti / Iwar Werlen (Universities of Basel / Berne)
Christa Dürscheid / Andreas H. Jucker (University of Zurich)
Heike Behrens / Annelies Häcki Buhofer / Angelika Linke (Universities of
Basel / Zurich)
