Meeting Description:

Two-day conference on evaluation and text types at Augsburg University,
focusing on evaluation in the new media and cross-cultural aspects of
evaluation.

The Department of (English) Linguistics at Augsburg University (Wolfram
Bublitz, Monika Bednarek) will host a 2-day conference on evaluation and
text types, to be held from the 22nd to the 23rd of July 2005.

For the purposes of this conference evaluation is defined as

the broad cover term for the expression of the speaker's or writer's
attitude or stance towards, viewpoint on, or feelings about the entities or
propositions that he or she is talking about. That attitude may relate to
certainty or obligation or desirability or any of a number of other sets of
values. (Thompson & Hunston 2000: 5)

and overlaps with competing notions such as stance and appraisal.

Proposals are invited for papers addressing various aspects of the analysis
of evaluation in different types of text. We welcome specifically papers
dealing with evaluation in the new media (internet, email etc) and
cross-cultural aspects of evaluation.

We invite abstracts and proposals of no more than 300 words to be submitted
via email by February 28, 2005. We expect to provide notification of
acceptance or otherwise by March 31, 2005.

ABSTRACTS

Abstracts should be 250-300 words long and should be submitted by email to:

Monika.Bednarek at phil.uni-augsburg.de

Abstracts should contain:

- Title of the presentation
- Name(s) of the author(s)

FURTHER CONFERENCE INFORMATION

Further details about the conference, including travel and accommodation
information, programmes and abstracts will be posted on the conference
website (currently under construction). There will be a conference fee of
25 Euro (postgraduate students excluded), but limited funding may become
available to individual participants.
