Linguistic Field(s): Anthropological Linguistics; General Linguistics

Meeting Description:

The congress theme, Negotiating difference: languages, metalanguages,
modalities, cultures, celebrates the rich and multifaceted nature of semiotic
systems as research objects as well as the multilayered nature of the
research and contributions to linguistics that are motivated by those
semiotic systems. The theme also celebrates dialogue, plurality and mutual
acquaintance by promoting not only intersections and interfaces involving
different perspectives, trends and theoretical perceptions of research
objects within systemic functional linguistics, but also associations and
connections with theories and methodologies outside systemic functional

The theme therefore seeks to be broad and inclusive, inspiring the
congress to embrace contributions that fall outside the scope promoted by
previous ISFCs. In particular, it aims at building bridges, transcending
frontiers and negotiating difference to include reflections, dialogues,
partnerships and discussions with researchers working in other theories
and methodologies but who share certain fundamental axioms with SFL.

The congress will open formally the morning of Monday, July 25. Each day
will include two plenary papers and a range of parallel sessions.

Caroline Coffin, Open University, Milton Keynes, United Kingdom
Frances Christie, Sydney University, Sydney, Australia
