- The Exploratory Workshop (CLIE-2015): Linguistic and Intercultural Education in the
Process of Internationalisation of Higher Education, 26-28 March 2015
Venue and host institution: University of Alba Iulia, Romania
Special Theme: Including an ‘intercultural dimension’ in the internationalisation of teaching,
learning and research

CLIE-2016 aims at investigating the intrinsic relationship between language and culture
and the multifariousness of their interrelatedness, in particular from a pragma-semantic
approach. The two-way interdependence and synergies between language and culture are
determinants of the extent to which culture is included in meaning creation, influencing the
speakers’ perceptions of culture as reflected in our exchanges about the world surrounding
us. By delving into the semantics of a language we may reach an understanding of cultural
meanings. Along the same lines, this could reveal the implicit suppositions which are
connected to them and which are implicitly understood and shared by the community
members,
but not accessible to outsiders.

Conference topics:

- Discourse Analysis, Rhetoric and Pragmatics
- Second Language Acquisition
- Semantics and Stylistics
- Contrastive Linguistics
- Foreign/Second Language Teaching and Teacher Education
- Sociolinguistics
- Translating, Interpreting and Mediation
- Business Communication
- Intercultural Communication

Other topics may include more specialised issues:

- the importance of languages in integrating an international and intercultural dimension in
the design and content of university curricula, as well as in the teaching/learning processes
- the role and status of translation and the translator/transcommunicator in nowadays
globalised and technologised societies and cultures
- the influence of language contact on shaping social, political, economic and cultural
discourses and identities, etc.
