Dear I-Landers,

We are writing to remind you that you still have a month (until 3 MAY) 
to submit your abstract to the 6th edition of the LANGUAGING DIVERSITY 
INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE (University of Zaragoza, TERUEL, Spain, 24-27 
September 2019). Don't miss your chance to showcase your research in a 
highly PERSUASIVE context (PERSUASION being the main focus of this 
year's edition :-)).

LD6 builds on the themes of the previous editions (i.e. diversity, 
alterity, power, social class and globalisation) to propose a research 
strand linked to persuasion, the pragmatic or communicative intention 
whereby identity is enacted, power communicated and societal patterns 
reproduced. In LD6, we set out to cast light on the intricacies of 
persuasive discourse and the manifold reactions it may engender in 
today’s globalised and multicultural societies. At the core of this 
endeavour is a genuine willingness and commitment to tease out the 
nature of persuasion in diverse contexts (e.g. art, education, business, 
sport, companies, the private sphere, etc.), through diverse channels 
(e.g. face-to-face interaction, on-line communication, published 
articles, performances, etc.), and as more or less relevant to diverse 
identities (e.g. linguistic, political, gendered, etc.).

We are looking forward to a varied programme and invite abstracts in any 
of the conference languages (ENGLISH, SPANISH, FRENCH, and ITALIAN) for 
FULL PRE-CONFERENCE WORKSHOPS, PAPERS, POSTERS, short work-in-progress 
reports in the PECHA KUCHA format, as well as PANELS adhering to any of 
the conference's broad research questions.
