Meeting Description:

'Linguistiques d’intervention - Des usages socio-politiques des savoirs sur le langage et les langues'

Le colloque international annuel de la SHESL sera consacré en 2012 aux usages socio-politiques des savoirs sur le langage et les langues et ce, dans une perspective tant historique que transculturelle. L’objectif général est de mettre en perspective les relations que les sciences du langage (l’appellation est à prendre lato sensu) ont entretenues par le passé et entretiennent aujourd’hui avec le domaine socio politique afin, d’une part, de dégager un panorama des enjeux auxquels les travaux relatifs au langage peuvent être mêlés et, d’autre part, de développer une réflexion sur le rôle du théoricien du langage - chercheur, expert, missionnaire, citoyen… - ainsi que sur la manière dont il fait autorité, refuse de faire autorité, ou s’autorise lui-même. Plus largement, nous nous interrogerons sur le rapport entre saviors sur le langage et/ou les langues et intervention socio-politique: les sciences du langage sont-elles plus perméables aux doctrines socio-politiques que d’autres savoirs sur l’homme ? Le sont-elles autrement ?

Interventionist Linguistics
Socio-political Uses of Knowledge about Language and Languages

The 2012 SHESL-HTL annual conference will be devoted to looking into the socio-political uses of knowledge about language and languages, within a historical and transcultural perspective.

The general objective of the conference is to explore the past and present relationship between the language sciences (the term is interpreted broadly) and the socio-political domain. This should lead us, on the one hand, to come up with an overview of the possible stakes of research on linguistic issues, and on the other, to reflect on the role of language theorists – researchers, experts, missionaries, citizens – as language authorities: how do they behave in this role, do they refuse it, do they self-proclaim? More broadly, we shall question the relationship between knowledge about language and/or languages and socio-political intervention: are the language sciences more permeable to socio-political doctrine than other types of knowledge in the fields of the humanities and social sciences? Are they so in a different way?
