Message 1: Systemic Functional Linguistics Summer School 97

From: GL250012Venus.YorkU.CA <GL250012Venus.YorkU.CA>
Subject: Systemic Functional Linguistics Summer School 97
SUMMER SCHOOL OF SYSTEMIC FUNCTIONAL LINGUISTICS:

Learning how to mean: transdisciplinary perspectives on
language in context

July 7-18, 1997

Glendon College, York University Toronto, Canada

PURPOSE:

The Summer School 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.

OBJECTIVES:

By the end of the first week, participants will know: how the Systemic
Functional model organizes three different modes of meaning in the
lexico-grammar: the represention of experience, the enactment of
speaker/addressee relationships, and the relation of language to the
context in which it is unfolding.

By the end of the second week, participants will know: how the Systemic
Functional model organizes the three contextual dimensions in which
language operates: purposeful activity, social interaction, and
communicative event.

By the end of the course, participants will be able to:

 * interact more effectively with scholars dealing with language in other
disciplines

 * move their research in new directions

 * participate actively in the 24th International Systemic Functional
Congress which immediately follows the Summer School.

LECTURES:

Morning lectures will introduce the Systemic Functional model.
Familiarity with this approach to language will not be assumed.

WORKSHOPS:

Fellows and course participants working together in small afternoon
workshops will take the theoretical concepts introduced in the morning and 
use them to explore examples of discourse currently being investigated in 
disciplines other than linguistics.

FELLOWS:

Senior scholars in other disciplines along with Systemic Functional
linguists will participate as Fellows in the workshops. Their role will be
to make sure that the workshops are challenged to address the 
transdisciplinary concerns of the Summer School and Congress.

FACULTY:

David Butt, Rhondda Fahey, Sue Spinks (Macquarie University), Jonathan
Fine (Bar-Ilan University), Rosemary Tannoch (Hospital for Sick Children),
Paul Thibault (University of Venice), Theo Van Leeuwen (The London
Institute), Stuart Shanker (York University), Rob Bowman (York University)

paper 75% (due within one month after the completion of the course).

(URL: http://www.ling.lancs.ac.uk/staff/visitors/kenji/book.htm)

This web page has two sections, the list of links to companies
and the list of individual companies. The latter is mainly for
TESL/TEFL or linguistics. The former includes interesting lists
of linguistics and communication, lists by countries, places you
can search for books, etc.

Useful Lists for TEFL/TESL

We have compiled "Useful Lists for TEFL/TESL" (URL :
http://www.ling.lancs.ac.uk/staff/visitors/kenji/lis-tefl.htm)

This web page has a list of about 40 mailing lists related to
TESL/TEFL and foreign language teaching. We have computer
