Linguistic Field(s): Discourse Analysis 

Meeting Description: 

The focus of the conference is business discourse as a data driven multimethod
approach for understanding how people and organizations communicate
strategically in an increasingly global business environment. 

Business discourse views language as contextually situated social action
constructed by its social actors and aims to understand how people communicate
strategically in an organizational context. Business discourse research employs
a variety of methods ranging from conversation analysis, pragmatics, corpus
linguistics, genre analysis and intersects humanities and social sciences
through its focus on language at work. 

Conference topics include but are not limited to:
- Workplace communication 
- Leadership communication
- Corporate social responsibility
- Multicultural communication.
