Meeting Description:

The 7th Discourse Analysis Symposium will be held on November 18th 2011.
This year's theme is:

Discourse Synergies: The Interplay of Language and Cultural Diversity

The formulation and articulation of discourses in everyday interactions and
institutional settings bring to light the many complexities involved in the
development of interpersonal exchanges. People's interactions with
languages and cultures diverse from their own, in conjunction with the
spread of global communication, are contributing to the process of
re-creating ways of communicating with others.

Call for Papers:

Abstracts and proposals for presentations are being sought in areas including:

- Communicating with culturally and linguistically diverse speakers (e.g.
face to face communication)
- Communicating between institutional cultures (e.g. legal discourse,
medical discourse, educational discourse vs. non-institutional discourse)
- Communicating between diverse age groups (e.g. seniors and young people)
- Communicating with virtual 'friends' (e.g. face book/twitter etc.)
- Communication between/among different mass media (e.g. news, radio
programs, TV)
- Communication through intertextuality (e.g. medical discourse entering
computer technology)

Proposals for presentations outside these areas will also be considered.
