Meeting Description:

Celebrating more than thirty years of critically applied linguistic 
research at
the University of East Anglia, the School of Language, Linguistics and
Translation Studies is hosting CADAAD, an opportunity for interdisciplinary
application and development in critical approaches to discourse analysis.

Thirty years have passed since research began at the University of East 
(UEA) into what would be inaugurated as Critical Linguistics with the
publication of Language and Control in 1979. UEA has since remained at the
forefront of critically applied linguistic research.

In continuation of this tradition, the School of Language, Linguistics and
Translation Studies (LLT) invites abstracts to be considered for a 
designed to assess the state of the art and offer new directions for 
discourse research across disciplines. The conference is organized in
cooperation with the Centre for Applied Research in Education (CARE) and 
Centre for Staff and Educational Development (CSED).

Whilst it is CDA that has claimed the most attention, papers dealing 
with any
critical approaches to discourse analysis are invited across a variety of

Interdisciplinarity as a central theme for the conference can be 
interpreted in
two ways. First, we are interested in critical approaches to discourse 
as applied within disciplines including all humanities and sciences but 
applied and professional areas such as medicine, environmental studies,
engineering, social policy, education, law, etc. Second, the methodological
foundations of critical discourse analysis historically lie with 
(from transformational to systemic functional grammar) and ethnography. 
recently the critical discourse analysis enterprise has benefited from a 
range of methodlogies. We therefore also welcome and encourage papers 
the theoretical advances in linguistics, psychology and cognitive science
amongst other disciplines which offer the opportunity for critically 
discourse research to expand its methodological arsenal.

As of now, CAADAD appears to be the only international forum during 2006
offering the opportunity for scholars to exchange ideas in a conference 
The conference will experiment with a new form of online proceedings 
post-conference interaction between presenters, participants and an 
audience. From this process selected presentations will be published as 
proceedings. CADAAD is pursuing publication opportunities with the John
Benjamins series Discourse Approaches to Politics, Society and Culture 

Abstracts of 300 words plus references should be submitted to
discourseuea.ac.uk by 25 February, 2006 in Word format (RTF or plain 
text are
acceptable alternatives, use of PDF is discouraged). Successful 
applicants will
be notified by 1 May.

Further details including information on plenary speakers, registration 
fees, accommodation and travel tips will be available soon on the 
website at http://discourse.uea.ac.uk.
