Meeting Description:

Cross-Cultural Pragmatics at a Crossroads III
IMPACT: Making a Difference in Intercultural Communication

Plenary/Guest Speakers:

Istvan Kecskes (University at Albany, USA)
Mona Baker (University of Manchester, UK)
[Srikant Sarangi (Cardiff University, UK) TBC]
Minako O'Hagan (Dublin City University, Ireland)
Ana Rojo (Universidad de Murcia, Spain)
Chritine Béal and Véronique Traverso (Université Paul Valéry, Montptellier and Lyon 2, France)

Makiko Mizuno (Kinjo Gakuin University, Nagoya) (Outreach Event Special Guest contributor)

The conference builds on the success of two prior Cross-cultural Pragmatics at a Crossroads conferences at the UEA - Speech Frames and Cultural Perceptions in 2006, and its larger-scale follow-up Linguistic and Cultural Representations across Media in 2011, this time with an even more ambitious agenda.

Like its forerunners, CCP III will be interdisciplinary, and aims to bring together, under the umbrella of cross-cultural pragmatics, researchers from domains which are particularly sensitive to cross-cultural issues, to promote the cross-fertilization of practises, ideas and theoretical approaches, and explore key concerns associated with communication across language and culture boundaries, in practice and theory.

Making a difference, the impact theme of this third meeting, will tap into, and confront, two closely related spheres of research activity in intercultural communication:

- Research in its value and contribution to wider society, i.e. the pursuit of research that makes a difference and ways of making it applicable and available to those for whom it can make a difference
- Research in its investigation of factors that impede or promote communication, understanding and respect for otherness in multicultural/globalised settings

Further details will be provided in the call for papers.
