Dear I-Landers, 

We are very pleased to inform you that the _2ND CALL FOR PAPERS_ for the
6th edition of the LANGUAGING DIVERSITY INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE (24-27
SEPTEMBER 2019) is out now! 

Following the five successful events hosted by the Universities of
Naples (2013), Catania (2014), Macerata (2016), Cagliari (2017) and
Antwerp (2018), the _I-Land Interuniversity Research Centre_ brings the
sixth edition of its _Languaging Diversity _annual conference (_LD6_) to
THE UNIVERSITY OF ZARAGOZA, SPAIN, AT THE CAMPUS OF TERUEL. The
beautiful historic city of TERUEL, a UNESCO world heritage site, boasts
mesmerising examples of the Mudejar architectural style, and is home to
the tragic and deeply moving story of Diego de Marcilla and Isabel de
Segura, the so-called 'lovers of Teruel'. 

_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.). As in previous
_LD _editions, interdisciplinarity will also be key for us. This time,
in _LD6_, the collaboration and cross-fertilisation of knowledge will
show in an organising and scientific team encompassing Philology,
Psychology, Education, Business and Fine Arts, five areas representing
the extremely enriching interdisciplinary make-up of THE FACULTY OF
SOCIAL AND HUMAN SCIENCES IN TERUEL. 

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.  IMPORTANT DATES
