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 
<mailto:discourse at> 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  Any queries concerning the 
conference or venue should be directed to Piotr Cap (strus_pl at
