Call for Papers: The
Pragmatics of Interaction Around the Event of
E-mail this message to a
Dr Alessandro Capone and Dr Salmani Nodoushan
would like to collect papers for a volume
The Pragmatics of Interaction Around the Event
The volume may be published by Springer in Dr
Capone’s series ‘Perspectives on pragmatics,
philosophy and psychology’, if all papers are
of high standards, as is expected.
The focus will be on interaction around the
event(s) of death and emphasis on analysis of
linguistic interaction will be preferred.
Prospective contributors are encouraged to film
or record and then analyse such events.
We expect to publish 30-40 papers of 15-20
pages (approx 500 words per page), dealing with
culture including the Anglo-American and
European one, but we would also greatly
appreciate papers on non-European
languages/cultures. Please send us abstracts
within 10 months from this newsletter.
We encourage linguists and anthropologists (but
also historians) to send us their abstracts.
1000 words will suffice for an abstract. We
prefer detailed abstracts so that we can be
selective enough. Criteria for choice of the
papers will be as usual: vast knowledge of the
literature; deep analysis; synthesis. Excellent
knowledge of pragmatics is required.
