Meeting Description:

1st International Conference on Ecolinguistics: 'Communicating the Environment and the Landscape. Words, Images, Languages and Discourses of Nature and Culture.'

The Conference is the first of its kind, and it is directed to academics, researchers, students, professionals and to everyone interested in applied linguistics, environmental issues and the globalization of communication on ecological matters. We are inviting everyone who wishes to participate as an active member of the audience and/or as a participant of one or more round tables, which are scheduled after each morning and afternoon session.

The Conference's main aims are to stimulate an active and productive link with many of the neighbouring areas of research in the disciplines of natural and cultural studies under the Ecolinguistics macro-ideal (such as linguistics, metaphor studies, cinema and television studies, cultural anthropology, literature and gender studies, tourism and sustainable landscape promotion), to join forces between the international academia and the associations that deal with ecological practices on the territory, and to open up a local, national and international discussion on the present state of the art and on the future challenges for this innovative, multidisciplinary and necessary area of investigation.

The symposium is sponsored by several organizations and associations such as the Italian Ministry of the Environment, the Language and Ecology Forum (www.ecoling.net), the Happy Degrowth Movement-Italian Section, the Landscape Observatory for the Asti Territory, the Club UNESCO Asti Section, the Italian Forum of the Movements for the Land and the Landscape, WWF Italy, Legambiente Italy, among others.

The attendance is free and welcome (also as official participants to the round tables at the end of each session - please refer to programme).

Please email for information, attendance, transport and accommodation details, bilingual abstracts summaries document and essays book.
