Meeting Description:

Cultural Linguistics is an emerging field that focuses on the interrelation between language and cultural conceptualisations. Current research in Cultural Linguistics shows that its analytical framework can offer fruitful inquiries into research areas such as pragmatics, emotions, religion, political discourse, World Englishes, intercultural communication, and Teaching English as an International Language (TEIL). Within these domains, cultural conceptualisations manifest in the forms of cultural schemata, cultural metaphors and cultural categories. The conference welcomes presentations based on studies conducted from a Cultural Linguistic perspective, involving research into the nature of underlying cultural conceptualisations in language, the role of cultural conceptualisations in intercultural pragmatics, language development and language teaching. CLIC-2021 hopes to provide an interesting platform for researchers and academics interested in the proposed topics.
