Meeting Description:

VERBAL-Workshop ‘Mobility & Language / Mobilität & Sprache’
22-24 November 2013
University of Salzburg, Austria

Mobility means many things, moving and being moved, being ready and being able to move, desiring to move and being forced to move, moving in physical, social and cognitive spaces, moving from one place to another or moving as an activity in its own right. Mobility covers such diverse social, cultural and political phenomena as migration, tourism, transport, sports, professional flexibility and disability. Mobility thus seems to conceptually organize (or disorganize) our thinking about the modern world.

The workshop ‘Mobility & Language / Mobilität & Sprache’, continuing the VERBAL* series ‘X&Language / X&Sprache’, will take place at the University of Salzburg, 22-24 November 2013, as part of the programme of the ÖLT, the annual conference of linguistics in Austria. It will be organized by Marietta Calderón and Georg Marko.

*VERBAL is the Verband für Angewandte Linguistik ‘Association of Applied Linguistics’ in Austria.

Call for Papers:

The workshop ‘Mobility & Language’ seeks to explore the role that language and discourse play in shaping and constructing the multi-faceted concept/s of mobility. We invite contributions approaching this topic from various methodological and disciplinary angles, ranging from sociolinguistics and discourse analysis to semantics and historical linguistics. There are no restrictions on the language or the semiotic mode of the material to be analysed as we are looking for a wide range of different contributions.

We would like to invite you to submit an abstract of no more than 300 words to marietta.calderonsbg.ac.at by 15 July 2013. Notifications of acceptance will be sent at the beginning of August 2013.

Individual presentations will be allocated 30 minutes (including 10 minutes for discussion). The workshop languages are English and German. We are planning to publish a volume of the papers from the workshop.
