Meeting Description:

We have the pleasure to announce that the first international young scholars symposium on Discourse, Ideology, and Society will take place in Lodz, Poland, on March 18-20, 2011. Our goal is to provide a platform where young researchers can share their expertise, interest, and passion for discourse and its multiple social, political, and cultural contexts.

This inter-disciplinary conference intends to explore the notion of discourse as socially constituted and constitutive, historically shaped, ideologically conditioned, and culturally embedded, and to promote multidisciplinarity and integration across various fields of discourse and representation-related research. Bridging the gap between qualitative and quantitative approaches, we want to look for new effective solutions and tools that will allow us to cope with methodological challenges and will make it possible to address the discourse-society dialectics in a novel comprehensive way.

Call for Papers:

We welcome contributions from all of the following areas: linguistics, sociology, political studies, psychology, journalism and media studies, advertising, culture studies, gender studies, and business communication. Contributions of B.A., M.A., Ph.D. students and young researchers are particularly encouraged. Possible areas of research include, but are by no means limited to, the following:

- Perspectives on discourse and communication: pragmatics, Critical Discourse Analysis, rhetoric and argumentation, social semiotics, Conversation Analysis
- Qualitative and quantitative methodologies in discourse studies
- Myths, metaphors, and frames in discourse
- Political discourse and communication
- Mass-mediated discourse and the language of New Media
- Discursive representations of national, ethnic and religious identities
- Stereotypes and discrimination in discourse
- Discourse, ideology, and conflict
- Persuasion, manipulation, and propaganda
- Gender in discourse
- Business and corporate communication
- Advertising discourse
- Visual communication
- Localisation and globalization in discourse

Abstract Submission:

Papers will be allocated 20 minutes plus 10 minutes for questions. The language of the conference is English. Abstracts of no more than 350 words (excluding references) should be sent by email as a Word attachment to discas.polandgmail.com by February 28, 2011. Please include name, affiliation, email address and paper title in the body of the email. Notification of acceptance decisions will be communicated via email by March 4, 2011.


Presenters will be invited to submit papers based on the general theme for publication in a post-conference volume. A selection of papers will also be published in Lodz Papers in Pragmatics (http://versita.com/lpp), in printed and electronic formats.
