Dear all,

We are pleased to announce the third international conference Critical 
Approaches to Discourse Analysis across Disciplines.  The conference 
will take place in Lodz, Poland 13-15 September 2010.  The conference 
has a general theme of  "Ideology, identity and interaction".  See for details.

In line with previous CADAAD conferences, this 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

different approaches to critical discourse research, have been confirmed:
