"Language, Manipulation, and Power at the End of the Millenium"

The focus of this seminar is on language in the context of the social,
political, and ethical dilemmas present in the culture at the end of this
millenium. In the seminar, sociolinguistic, semiolinguistic,
structuralist, and poststructuralist perpectives are encouraged. Issues
to be addressed include: How do theories of language conceptualize power?
What sense might it make to talk about an "ethics of language manipulation?"
How might we talk about this set of ethics?

Leaders: Alan C. Harris, CSU, Northridge and Jacqueline M. Martinez,
Purdue U.

Anyone wishing to participate should send a letter of self-nomination to Alan
C. Harris, Prof. SPCH, CSUN, Northridge, CA 91330-8257 (see FAX etc.
info' below) to arrive by July 1, 1994. The letter should include a short
academic vita and a one-two page position statement on the topic. The
leaders will select and inform participants about the form of the final
papers, scheduling, paper circulation, future plans for
submissions, distribution and the like.
