Meeting Description:

The Department of Linguistic and Literary Studies of the University of Padua is organizing the conference ‘Pragmatics on the Go - Teaching and Learning about Pragmatics: Principles, Methods and Practices’ to be held in Padua from 17 to 20 June 2013.

Conference Theme:

Over the last 30 years, experts in pragmatics have convincingly pointed out how pragmatic skills are not picked up intuitively by foreign or second language learners, even after intensive exposure to and practice in the language, and how the development of pragmatic competence strongly benefits from explicit instruction and training. Yet, so far linguistic pragmatics has not often been the explicit focus of attention in foreign/second language curriculum planning and design.

This conference aims to bring together linguists and teachers active in pragmatics and related disciplinary fields (e.g. sociolinguistics, discourse analysis, conversation analysis, language education, communication studies) to share experiences and discuss proposals regarding approaches to the teaching and learning of linguistic pragmatics in the context of second/foreign language education.

General Information:

- Information about registration, accommodation, the social programme will appear on the conference website in late March 2013.
- No conference registration fee is envisaged.
- The conference homepage is in preparation.
