Meeting Description:

Cross-cultural Communication in Academia
(a session of the conference: Integration of Universities into International Academic Community: Tradition and Modern Tendencies)

The session aims to convene specialists in language and communication studies to debate on theoretically and empirically founded approaches to development and socialization of academics in inter- and intracultural settings.

Examples of issues to be addressed by prospective participants include:
- How does academic discourse differ from other forms of communication such as media, classroom, business, popular science discourse? Has the place of academic discourse within the system of national discourses changed recently?
- Is disciplinary or paradigmatic variation more marked in modern academic discourse?
- Is there correlation between stylistic features, strategies and ideologies within a specific academic discourse community?
- Do national academic discourse communities use the same set of academic genres? Does the perception of such key academic genres as research paper and thesis differ in national research communities?
- Can ideas be rendered effectively no matter what academic style a specific research community favours? Can loss of information content be avoided in moving from one stylistic system to another?
- Does code-switching affect the stance of a researcher who regularly uses both native and non-native languages for professional communication?
