Meeting Description:

Changing Genre Conventions in Historical News Discourse
Date: 18-19 May 2012
Place: Rostock, Germany

We are pleased to announce the 3rd International Conference on Historical News Discourse (CHINED III), which follows up the inspiring conferences held in Florence (2004) and Zurich (2007). CHINED III will take place in Rostock, Germany, 18-19 May 2012.

CHINED III will bring together the latest research on historical news discourse. Adopting a broad definition of news discourse, the focus of this conference will be on the dynamics of genre conventions, particularly its triggers, agents and mechanisms. The conference aims at stimulating theoretical and methodological discussions, and also welcomes empirical studies in this field.

This conference, like the two previous ones, adopts a broad perspective on historical news discourse, including prototypical examples such as pamphlets and newspapers as well as documents from various speech situations such as political speeches, proclamations and announcements.

Keynote Speaker:

Irma Taavitsainen, University of Helsinki

Call for Papers:

We invite papers which share an interest in the dynamics of genre conventions and focus on:

- Theoretical aspects, methodological challenges and results of empirical research in historical news discourse
- Multi-feature analysis or research on individual features (including lexical, structural and textual characteristics as well as pragmatic and sociolinguistic aspects)
- Triggers, agents and mechanisms of change in genre conventions

Extended deadline for abstract submission: December 15, 2011

Conference organisers: Birte Bös, Lucia Kornexl (University of Rostock)
