Meeting Description:

Workshop on Stance in Discourse: Functional, Typological and Diachronic Perspectives
May 7-9, 2012
Hong Kong Polytechnic University

In celebrating the 75th anniversary of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, the Department of English proudly hosts a workshop on Stance and Discourse to be held on May 7-9, 2012. This workshop is the second in a series of workshops on Stance Phenomena, with the first workshop held in July 2011 and the third scheduled for Sept 2012.

Research on stance (i.e. the speakers’ encoding of their source of information, value judgments, degree of commitment, personal feelings, attitude, etc.) is gaining increasing attention in recent years. The objective of this workshop is to explore stance marking in different languages and different social domains, in particular public discourse in political, media, healthcare, business and service encounter settings, in addition to informal conversations at home and in the workplace.

Registration is free for every participant, and lunch and coffee breaks are included.
