Confs: Discourse Across Languages & Cultures

Editor for this issue: Anita Huang <anitalinguistlist.org>


Please keep your conference announcement as short as you can; LINGUIST will not post conference announcements which in our opinion are excessively long. Also, please remember that, once posted, your announcement will be permanently available at our website: http://www.linguistlist.org/issues/indices/Confs1997r.html For this reason, we discourage multiple submissions of the same conference announcement. Thank you for your cooperation.

THE 24TH UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN-MILWAUKEE 
LINGUISTICS SYMPOSIUM

DISCOURSE ACROSS LANGUAGES AND CULTURES

SEPTEMBER 10 - 12, 1998

Our 24th symposium will be what we believe to be one of the first
conferences to bring together scholars from fields such as 

CONTRASTIVE RHETORIC, RHETORICAL TYPOLOGY, 

TRANSLATION STUDIES, AND DISCOURSE ANALYSIS. 

Although these scholars work in related fields, little opportunity has
existed for interaction among them. The goal of this symposium is to
provide such an opportunity and to facilitate the sharing of knowledge
about cross-cultural and cross-linguistic patterns in discourse, whether
that discourse be spoken or written.

Featured Speakers include:
Ruth Berman (Tel-Aviv University)
Wallace Chafe (University of California-Santa Barbara)
Susanna Cumming (University of California-Santa Barbara)
William Eggington (Brigham Young University)
Robert Longacre (University of Texas at Arlington)
Carol Lynn Moder (Oklahoma State University)
Ronald Scollon (Georgetown University)
Dan I. Slobin (University of California-Berkeley)
Sonja Tirkonnen-Condit (University of Joensuu)

All sessions will be held on our campus in the University of
Wisconsin-Milwaukee Student Union. The first plenary session is scheduled
to begin Thursday afternoon. A full program will be provided at a later
date.

REGISTRATION: Pre-registration fees are $20 for students, $45 for regular
