Meeting Description: 

In recent years, 'political-linguistic' studies have been drawing on increasingly bigger empirical input from the neighboring domains, including linguistic pragmatics, critical discourse analysis, social psychology, sociology and anthropology. Our conference, the first international event of its kind and scale in central/eastern Europe, comes as a response to this trend. It aims at convening scholars from a wide range of disciplines, interested, broadly speaking, in the rich and heterogeneous but thus yet to become better demarcated area of intersection of language/discourse and the political sphere (i.e. politics, both in its institutionalized and everyday dimensions). The general purpose is to explore and deepen ways of analyzing language as a political instrument, a political theme, and a political domain. 

More specifically, we invite papers addressing the following issues:

-the use of language in political rhetoric, advertising, media discourse, propaganda, persuasion, etc.
-language and processes of ideological symbolization;
including folk linguistic ideologies, normative use of language and language-based reproduction of ideologies;
-language of the state, viz. language policies and language planning at various stages of the information flow, including the art of document design and press releases; 
-societal multilingualism, linguistic pluralism and linguistic minority policies;
-language change and variation in political discourse: transformations at the lexical (terminology, neologisms, semantic shifts), morpho-syntactic, and text/discourse-pragmatic levels
- language contact in the political domain: borrowing processes, style-shifting, code-mixing
-globalisation of political discourse: homogenisation of social and linguistic knowledge in the political milieu
-hybridisation of generic/discursive structures, text types, and interactive strategies across languages and cultures
-mulitimodality and unification patterns in political communication
-historical/diachronic transformations in political genres
-intertextuality and mediation in political communication
-axiological aspects of political discourses (valuation in political texts)
-language attitude research: social attitudes to political discourse(s)
-translating the language of politics
-directions in language training of politicians.
