Date: Fri, 26 Jul 1996 10:15:51 CDT
From: GL250012Venus.YorkU.CA <GL250012Venus.YorkU.CA>
Subject: Systemic Functional Linguistics Congress
CALL FOR PAPERS:

24th International Systemic Functional Congress

July 21-25, 1997
Glendon College, York University, Toronto, Canada

Congress Theme

Learning how to mean: transdisciplinary perspectives on language in
context.

Communicating in contexts - the view from:
 * systemic functional grammar
 * primate communication
 * language development in normal children
 * language disorders	

Purpose

The Congress will bring together graduate students and scholars in
linguistics, psychology, psychiatry, comparative primatology, philosophy,
ethnomusicology and anthropology with an interest in a functional view of
language and other semiotic modalities, such as gesture, gaze, sign
language, and visual images to make meanings in context.

* Papers in all disciplines will be considered.

* Morning plenaries will raise questions and issues about the Congress
theme.

* Afternoon workshops focusing on individual texts will continue the
discussion of issues raised in the plenaries.

* Invited Fellows, senior scholars in other disciplines along with Systemic
Functional linguists, will ensure that the workshops address the 
transdisciplinary concerns of the Congress.

* A workgroup will be established to develop 'The Multi-Media Discourse
Analysis Handbook: A teaching and learning guide', which will focus on
the co-deployment of linguistic, gestural, and other semiotic modalities
in the making of meanings in discourse. The Handbook would develop in
explicit and workable ways the concerns of all the disciplines represented
at the Congress.
