Meeting Description:

On the 26 and 27 September 2019, the annual meeting of the PhD students participating in the Franco-German PhD College “Collocations and Discourse Traditions” (2016-2019) will take place at the Pompeu Fabra University, Barcelona. The meeting is organised by the network’s three partner universities: University of Potsdam (Germany), Paris West University Nanterre La Défense (France) and Pompeu Fabra University (Spain). The meeting takes the form of a workshop and offers a platform for presenting on-going PhD theses in the field of linguistics and related disciplines. It is also an opportunity to exchange knowledge and experiences and bring together students from different countries and universities in order to strengthen cooperation and international exchange.

The topic of the workshop continues the research issues discussed in former meetings. Primarily, it focuses on the development of collocations in the framework of certain discourse traditions and the introduction of the latter by means of translation. In addition, the modification of collocations may indicate a change of the established discourse traditions. The research in the network favours approaches relying on text linguistics, discourse analysis and variational linguistics, both from a synchronic and diachronic perspective. The main emphasis is placed on the description and frequency of collocations in a corpus-driven approach. Other lines of research are connected to foreign language linguistics and didactics.

The annual workshop centres on studying discourse traditions from intra-linguistic, cross-linguistic and translational points of view. It is open to PhD projects comparing collocations and discourse traditions between several European languages, in different text types and discourse genres.

The workshop takes place within the framework of the Franco-German PhD Network “Collocations and Discourse Traditions” (2016-2019, DFDK/CDFA 04-10), funded by the Deutsch-Französische Hochschule – Université Franco-Allemande of the DFG (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft).
