Meeting Description:

Today to an even larger extent than in the past centuries, communication
frequently takes place between individuals and institutions representing
different national and cultural backgrounds. This has resulted in a vast body of
theoretical discussions on the relation between language, culture and discourse
as well as in the emergence of empirical research on intercultural encounters.

Lodz is a city in Poland known for its multinational character and history. The
conference ''International Communication in the European Context'' aims at
presenting and discussing multiple approaches to cross-cultural communication
within Europe, or involving European cultures and perspectives. The organizers
welcome contributions on a wide range of subjects, such as e.g. sociolinguistic
studies on biculturalism and migration, the effects of linguistic and cultural
differences upon the process European integration, business communication, new
media, and the communication aspect of political relations and cultural exchange
between the European Union and the United States of America as well as
perspectives of other cultures on Europe.

This conference will have presentations, of theoretical and empirical character,
on the role of pragmalinguistic differences and different conventions of speech
and text genres in cross-cultural contexts, as well as on the effects of power
relations upon the forms of intercultural discourse. Social change,
international political campaigning, linguistic minorities, advertising,
management, corporate internal communication, tourism, youth culture,
international diplomacy, internal communication in the institutions of the EU,
and public media discourse are all within the range of subjects which we expect
to be dealt with at the conference.

The organizers invite contributions from linguistics, international relations,
political and economic disciplines, business studies, social psychology, culture
and media studies, literature and religion studies, and foreign language education.

Proposed subtopics (the list is not exhaustive):
1. Minority discourses
2. European diversity and European integration
3. Europe and the United States of America: communication and interpretation
4. Europe and other cultures and languages
5. Acquisition and teaching of cross-cultural competence
