CfP: Third International conference *Critical Approaches to Discourse
Analysis Across Disciplines* (CADAAD).
*General theme:* /Ideology, identity and interaction/
We are pleased to announce that the third international conference
Critical Approaches to Discourse Analysis across Disciplines will take
place 13-15 September 2010.
The last two CADAAD conferences have attracted a wide geographical
representation of researchers. In response to this, we have decided to
move CADAAD outside of the UK. CADAAD 2010 will be hosted in central
Europe, by the University of Łódź, Poland.
The conference aims to promote new directions in cross-disciplinary
critical discourse research. We welcome contributions from all areas of
critically applied linguistics. We especially encourage papers which
assess the state of the art and explore new methodologies in critical
discourse research oriented toward the general theme of /ideology,
identity and interaction/*. *Possible areas of analysis include but are
by no means limited to the following:
* Identities in discourse
* Political communication
* Language in the news
* Language in the new media
* Discourse of advertising
* Institutional discourse
* Language and globalisation
* Business communication
* Scientific discourse
* Health communication
* Language and ecology
Reflecting the commitments of the CADAAD project, the following keynote
speakers have confirmed their participation:
* Paul Chilton (Lancaster University)
* Seana Coulson (University of California San Diego)
* Anna Duszak (University of Warsaw)
* Bob Hodge (University of Western Sydney)
* Martin Reisigl (University of Vienna)
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 discourse at cadaad.org
<mailto:discourse at cadaad.org> by 15 January 2010. Please include name,
affiliation, email address and paper title in the body of the email.
All abstracts will be accepted subject to review by an international
Scientific Committee. Notification of acceptance decisions will be
communicated via email by the end of February 2010.
Presenters will be invited to submit papers based on the general theme
for publication in the CADAAD journal.
The conference is organised by Piotr Cap (local organiser) and Chris
Hart. Further information will be available soon at
