The theme of the 32nd GERAS Conference, to be held in Dijon in 2011, lies within
the scope of research conducted by our scientific community since 2008 under the
umbrella theme of « multiplicity and unity » in languages for specific purposes.
For this year's event, the University of Burgundy, which hosted the 21st GERAS
Conference in 2000, proposes the theme of: Hegemony and singularities:
orchestrating languages for specific purposes.
One of the major issues in English for Specific Purposes (ESP) and its four
traditional domains (the linguistic, cultural, didactic and technological
dimensions), remains its theoretical foundations and its relation with regard to
the other branches of Anglistics. Is it now time to redefine the major and minor
modes within each domain? Is it possible, desirable or even feasible to
harmonize the different fields of research? The theme chosen may be understood
not only as an investigation of the interface between ESP and the other branches
of Anglistics, but also as the analysis of the domain of Languages for Specific
Call for Papers
Paper proposals are invited to explore the following lines of enquiry in
accordance with the research principles underlying the GERAS. Ever since its
creation, the GERAS has sought to answer questions concerning the theoretical
foundations of linguistics.
- Should the study of specific discourse be considered within the framework of
the existing major schools of linguistics (the enunciative school, systemic
functional grammar, corpus linguistics...)?
- Are studies on enunciation still in keeping with the polyphonic perspective of
discourse as defined by Bakhtine?
- What specific/singular approaches to applied linguistics have been developed
from LSP teaching?
- What are the different types of discourse investigated in terminological studies?
- Is there a dominant form of discourse in each professional community and, if
so, is it possible to identify common features in these dominant forms?
- With regard to the subject of the study, should research focus on types of
dominant discourse in a given community rather than the production of types of
discourse which may be considered as minor?
- Has the integration of statistics as an essential tool in corpus linguistics
led to a trend in favor of systematic macro-analyses at the expense of
