Meeting Description:

The scope of the workshop is to bring together scholars and researchers interested in the relationship between language and ideology, from both a synchronic and a diachronic perspective, focusing in particular on textual and pragmatic strategies. Comparing oral and written communication media, the workshop seeks to highlight their common or parallel features in expressing such a deep feeling as the ideological one, trying to grasp language in its diamesic continuum.

Special guest: Norbert Dittmar (Freie Universität zu Berlin) - Slot for final discussion and conclusion.
