Meeting Description:

After successful first (Antwerp/Knokke 2005) and second (Ghent 2009)
International Workshops we are happy to announce a third edition in 2011. As
before, we hope to bring together researchers from e.g. discourse analysis,
linguistic pragmatics, text studies and also ethnography, organizational
studies or critical management studies for a small-scale, all-plenary
interactive forum with a limited number of participants and plenty of time for
discussion. As in our first edition, we will have a residential format.

Invited Speakers:

Charles Antaki and Hiromasa Tanaka


Managing Trust

Call for Papers

We would appreciate contributions that make fine-grained analyses of real-life
data to address the question of negotiating ''trust'' in discourse in more
specific ways such as:

-Studies that empirically address the question of 'trust' in organizational
-Process/product studies of ways in which mediated communication in
specific organizations tries to generate trustworthiness and reliability
-Studies of how communication is received/understood/evaluated as
trustworthy, reliable (or untrustworthy and unreliable) and why
-Analyses of the role of language(s), culture and/or discourse expectations in
establishing and maintaining trust relationships in organizational settings.

We invite contributions that study these and related issues in organizational
contexts such as health care, social services, education, business, law,
politics and journalism.

Submissions are invited for 40-minute slots (including 20 minutes of
discussion and question time). The workshop language is English. Please
send your abstract of 500 words (detailing research question, method, data
and preliminary conclusions) to katja.pelsmaekersua.ac.be and
craig.rolloua.ac.be before 31 January 2011.
