Meeting Description:

The staggering explosion of research on (im)politeness we have witnessed in recent decades has arguably paid relatively little attention (especially at the theoretical level) to one aspect which is crucial to the description of any cultural phenomenon. This is the transmission of and acculturation to (im)polite norms and associated linguistic systems (e.g. honorifics), or, in very broad terms, the ‘teaching’ and ‘learning’ of (im)politeness.

2nd Call for Papers:

We would like to remind interested participants of the approaching deadline for abstract submissions: 23 March 2013. Details of important dates can be found here: http://www.soas.ac.uk/politeness-2013/important-dates-for-participants-teaching-and-learning-impoliteness.html.

We would also like to draw your attention to five student sponsorships, whose details can be found here: http://www.soas.ac.uk/politeness-2013/student-sponsorships.html. These are available to postgraduate students in the field of Japanese (im)politeness. Applications must be submitted by 23 March.
