''Conflict in discourse and discourse in conflict''

http://tipa.revues.org/1524

In the public or private sphere, conflict is triggered through the process of discourse being produced, disseminated, interpreted and amplified -therefore having an effect the opinions and attitudes of its receivers. At the same time, human beings are inherently endowed with the ability to manage and overcome these conflicts through lexical choice, ways of speaking, non-verbal communication, deconfliction techniques and conflict resolution methods. In other words, conflict is mediated through discourse.

The thematic concept for volume 32 of TIPA -conceived following collaboration between a linguist and an expert in political discourse - proposes to focus on the relations between discourse and conflict, within various disciplinary frameworks, in order to address the following questions: What type of discourse engenders conflict? What are the features specific to conflictual discourse in terms of prosody, semantics, pragmatics, discursive or interactional structure? How can conflict be dealt with and resolved? How can identities and images be constructed or deconstructed through speech acts? How can lexical choice influence the success or failure of strategic narratives in an official speech?

These are just some of the questions to which linguistics and language sciences, as well as other neighbouring disciplines, can be sensitive and to which the scientific community may propose comprehensive answers by engaging in interdisciplinary research.
