2nd International Language Management Symposium: Norm Diversity and Language Management in Globalized Settings
Joint Sponsorship: Waseda University and Society of Language Management
Dates: 1-2 October 2011 (Sat & Sun)
Venue: Building 22, Waseda University
The Language Management Theory (LMT) had its origin in Neustupný's (1978) notion of 'language correction', but was more fully developed into 'language management' in 1987 (Jernudd and Neustupný 1987) and applied by Neustupný and other scholars. Central to the LMT at either macro or micro levels are the processes of norm deviations and subsequent noting, evaluations, formulation of an adjustment plan and implementation of adjustment. Whereas other frameworks or theories pay much attention to outcomes or products of correction or planning, processes such as noting, evaluation or planning of adjustment have received insufficient explication in (applied/socio) linguistic studies to date.
The first seminar under the title of 'Studies of LM in contact situations' was held in 1998 as a postgraduate research project after Neustupný started his teaching at Chiba University, Japan. The seminars continued until 2003 when Neustupný retired and returned to Australia. In 2004, the Society of language Management in Japan was established by main members of the research project team and so far 25 regular research seminars and three annual symposiums were opened to the public. In order to bring together scholars working within the LMT in different countries, the first international symposium entitled 'Language Management Workshop: Probing the Concept of Noting' was held at Monash University, Australia, in August 2008.
Call for Papers:
Following on the tradition of Language Management Theory elaborated by J.V. Neustupný and B.H. Jernudd, we invite working papers on theoretical explications and empirical studies of language norms in the globalised settings. Papers related to norm diversity, norm awareness, norm discrepancies, pre-/post-management of norms, norm consistency, management of noted and unnoted norms especially in various types of intercultural contact situations are most welcome.
