 30 June - 2 July 2009
Linguistic Impoliteness And Rudeness II (LIAR II):
The 2009 International Conference of
The Linguistic Politeness Research Group

Lancaster University, United Kingdom

 Opening plenary:

Geoffrey Leech (University of Lancaster)

Plenary speakers:
Sara Mills (Sheffield Hallam University)
Marina Terkourafi (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign)
Karen Tracy (University of Colorado)

This three-day conference focuses is on language and communication that
might be described as 'impolite', 'rude', 'aggressive', 'face-attacking',
etc., building on the success of the first impoliteness conference (LIAR) at
the University of Huddersfield. However, we also welcome any papers that are
related to politeness theory, application or practice in any form.
Researchers and postgraduates working in fields such as linguistics,
sociology, psychology, communication studies, business studies,
organizational studies, conflict resolution studies, literature and
philosophy are particularly welcomed, though the conference is open to all
interested parties.

Please contact the organizers regarding any proposals for panels.
Papers and Posters abstracts deadline: 31 January 2009.

Organizers: Jonathan Culpeper (Lancaster University) and
Derek Bousfield (University of Central Lancashire)
