Meeting Description:

The 6th international CRILL conference 2020 aims to provide a stage for an extensive exploration of the interdisciplinary nature of law both as a discipline and as an institutional/professional and organizational practice through the lenses of language, discourse and communication. We therefore invite original paper presentations to contribute to any of the broad areas listed below:

1. Boundary crossing between law and other disciplines and practices - medicine, healthcare, nursing, economics, business, finance, history, sociology, psychology, etc.
2. Cross-wise issues focusing on bioethics and law, eco-bioethics, nursing ethics and law, pharmacy ethics and law, bioethics and religion, professional risk and bioethics, social inclusion and bioethics
3. Ethical, political and other implications for digitalization of medical research and healthcare provision, including forensic science
4. Construction of interdisciplinary discourse focusing on emergent human rights and health law, politics of the environment, migration and law, crime and society
5. Contesting or harmonising dynamics of identities, power and ideology in law and other disciplinary practices
6. Construction and interpretation of interdisciplinary discourses for lay audiences

We welcome contributions on these and other related topic areas using a range of scholarly approaches to theoretical and methodological debates. Such approaches include, but are not limited to: discourse (textual) and (critical) genre analyses, critical discourse analysis, conversation analysis, corpus-based discourse analysis, interactional sociolinguistics, ethnography and communication analyses, multimodal discourse analysis, mediated discourse analysis, forensic linguistics, and translation/interpreting.

In addition to applied linguists, the conference brings together academics, researchers, and practitioners from other backgrounds to exchange new ideas as well as discuss the challenges encountered and solutions adopted.
