Meeting Description:

Oita Text Forum Workshop Round 3
Date: Sunday 4th December 2011
Venue: Dannoharu Campus of Oita University, Oita, Japan
Registration: Free

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 includes:

- Linguistic texts, whether written or spoken
- Paintings, sculptures, and any form of art
- Film
- Architecture
- Dance, etc.
- Any combination of these semiotic modes

Call for Papers:

OTF Workshop Round 3 focuses on fundamental elements in understanding the relationship between text, context, beliefs (including ideology and semiotic or knowledge base), culture, and cognition.

Specifically, we may explore questions such as:

- What is the relation between text and context?
- What can we say about culture in relation to text?
- 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?
- How are beliefs and ideologies constructed in text?
- What is the relationship between language and cognition?
- What is the relationship between language and other semiotic systems in the construal of meaning?

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-nanricc.oita-u.ac.jp. Workshops must be interactive and involve the audience, and abstracts must clearly outline how the workshop will proceed.
